frilly ornamental cabbage for fall


I'm crazy for the thick, frilly crinkled leaves of ornamental cabbage, and add a plum
 or fuchsia colored center and they're guaranteed to make their way into my cart. 
I spied some at a nursery over the weekend and couldn't help but grab a pot.
 I haven't decided how I'm going to display it yet, and I found too many pretty options. 
I have a pair of smaller urns that happen to be empty, and an old wooden coke box,
some great weathered pots, a shiny silver bowl, and a big white soup tureen. 
What to do?

add them to a pot or urn...

I love the cabbages and have been looking for some pretty ones around here but no luck yet.

Which cabbages are good for shady areas?

Ahhhhh you are totally inspiring me to add my front door pots to my weekly to-do list! They are in a sad state after a neglectful summer, I always forget about them because we don't use our front door that often! I wonder if the cabbages are low maintenance and if so they might be my new favorite thing! Thanks for the wonderful idea!

So pretty, indoors and out. I'd like to try one in my Fall window box. Thanks for the inspiration!

All beautiful ideas, Pam! Love planting cabbages and kale each fall, mixed with pansies and the little pepper plants the stores sell at this time of year.

I just love ornamental cabbage, too. I wish our nice weather lasted longer...the spring and fall plants are too short-lived for me. Maybe I need to move farther south, haha :)

I love cabbage in pots and they look great as center pieces on a table.

I have already been thinking along these lines for a table centerpiece I need to do this week. It's so pretty!

LOVE this. I used a row of them in our garden a few years ago and would use them as filler in flower arrangements. Have to do some pinning!

I would love to use these cabbages for my centerpiece!
