Brassica oleracea var. ramosa 'Daubenton Panache'

This perfectly edible kale has been around for some time and I think it's variegation is very attractive. I use it in mixed plantings and it is especially good with spring bedding as here with tulips. It is long lived and comes very easily from cuttings. I thought that this winter would have killed it but it came through without damage other than being defoliated by the ravenous hoards of wood pigeons that we have in London.
