Crambe maritima


Crambe maritima has dramatic, ruffled, silver blue leaves that you can sautée and eat! Or just enjoy their beauty in the garden.

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.
