Kosmic Kale Perennial Kale
This perennial kale has received our Cosmic Jab™ of approval many times over, and after years of enjoying their year-round greens we are excited to offer them to farmers and gardeners across the country. Kosmic Kale is a perennial kale, so unlike most brassicas that are biennial and flower in their second year, the Kosmic Kale continues growing in a vegetative state without going to flower. The white variegated edges of the leaves really make it pop in the garden and give it the cosmic flare for which it is so deeply treasured. Kosmic Kale Perennial Kale is a perfect addition to the forest garden or perennial bed.
