Peacock™ Red Flowering Kale makes a gorgeous addition to any fall and winter seasonal container or window box. The outer glaucous leaves continually open, revealing more brilliantly red, fresh foliage as the season progresses. Although this frilly-leaved Brassica plant is considered edible, it doesn't have the same flavor as less ornamental varieties. 

Add Peacock™ Red Flowering Kale to perennial borders or pots on a deck or patio. Combine it with other cold season annuals for a colorful display in window boxes and even hanging baskets. Depending on the plant combination, ornamental kale can be used as a thriller, filler or even (modified) spiller plant. Red Flowering Kale encounters few pests and disease and is even tolerant of light deer browsing. 

Peacock™ Red Flowering Kale Care

Kale thrives in full sun and well-draining soil. Ensure that drainage is good throughout the winter and that the garden bed or pot is not sitting in standing water at any point. Garden-grown kale can be fertilized at the time of planting by applying a granular slow-release feed. Container plants will require fertilizing every month with a diluted liquid seaweed or fish emulsion product when temperatures remain above 50 degrees F.  Peacock™ Kale does not require pinching to promote branching. The beauty of this plant is its ever-expanding central leaves, which continue growing for months.  

Flowering Kale makes a great fall decoration in all of the USDA hardiness zones. Although Red Flowering Kale tolerates a few light frosts, it may start dying back during a hard freeze in zones colder than 10. Remove plants as they begin to break down, and add them to your home compost or yard waste bin.  

Peacock™ Red Flowering Kale Spacing

Flowering Kale can continue to grow throughout the winter in USDA zones 10-11, where it may reach well past its usual 8-12 inches high. Space plants 12 inches apart if planting in a bedding display. Kale can also be grown in containers for seasonal color. Use 3 plants to fill up a 12-inch pot or 16-inch window box.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
