A perennial kale with purple stems and veins. Prefers full sun rich moist conditions, but it quite adaptable and can tolerate also more shady locations. Will develop a woody stem over some years and could grow up to 2 meters. It can tolerate a lot of cold, but a formal assessment has not been made.
Can easily be propagated by taking cuttings, removing all but the top two leaves and sticking it deep in the soil.
