Description Fine Print
 
The sea kale has large, ruffled, edible, cabbage-like, silver-blue leaves with undulating edges that provides great texture to the garden. In early summer Crambe maritima will start producing branched panicles of white flowers. The foliage is also edible and, we've been told, delicious sauteed in butter. Photo courtesy: Wikipedia.
