ornamental kale Brassica oleracea var. var. sabellica L. from Delhi: uploading Brassica oleracea var. sabellica L. (B. oleracea var. acephala auct., non DC.), the ornamental kale from Delhi
Grown in pots as ornamental for its variously coloured loose head of leaves.


We have long been using the name Brassica oleracea var. acephala DC. for both Kale used as vegetable and ornamental kale or flowering cabbage. Now it is understood that flowering kale is B. oleracea var. sabellica L. (and naturally B. oleracea var. acephala of most authors (auct.) and not DC. as synonym). Brassica oleracea var. acephala DC is now correctly known as B. oleracea var. viridis L. , accordingly correct name for kale used as vegetable (also known as collards, kale, cow cabbage, Portuguese kale, and our own famous Kashmiriri Karam Saag).
Accordingly the correct citation is:
Ornamental KaleBrassica oleracea var. sabellica L. (Syn: B. oleracea var. acephala auct. (non DC.))
Kale, Karam SaagB. oleracea var. viridis L. (Syn: B. oleracea var. acephala DC.)
