D’Aubenton kale is a perennial variegated tree kale popular in the UK that has a bushy habit and grows to two or three feet tall. The leaves are edible and the plant is suitable for ornamental gardens.  At first glance in a vegetable garden, it does not appear to be a vegetable or brassica plant because it is so aesthetically stunning. It can be cooked the same as other tree collards but is particularly attractive to use young leaves in raw salads or stir fries. It is perennial to at least 20° Fahrenheit and is propagated by cuttings, though it is more difficult to root than tree collards. This plant appears similar to Cosmic Kale, but it is different.  We are selling single rooted plants in 2.5″ degradable peat pots.

We generally ship on Tuesdays and you should receive your plant(s) approximately three-four days after they are shipped. Please be mindful of your local weather conditions when ordering. Your young plant(s) may be damaged by freezing or hot weather. We cannot be responsible for plants that freeze or get fried in the mail. If there is a defect with your order due to our packaging or a long delay from the post office please take a photo of your plants immediately and contact us within 24 hours of receipt of your shipment.
