Information

Ornamental Cabbage, or Flowering Kale Lucir, has a tall upright habit with a compact shinny flower which makes it perfect for adding a different touch for your bouquets. Growers can decide on the flower size depending on their market by adjusting the density and water.

This trait makes the Flowering Kale a very versatile focal flower. The dark leaves that surround the center area enhance the center color for a great contrast. The brightness of the flower color depends on production temperature.
The big advantage with this new Dream series when compared with the existing commercial varieties is that this series fixes the color more intensively, and the heads are more compact, giving an overall nicer look.

They yield a thinner stem, better for shipment.
