Coloured salads?


It may be the beginning of December and it has been a frost and it has been snow. But some plants are still with us when we are back to "normal" temperatures and surface conditions. I found these ones in a somewhat reduced condition at the edge of lawn while out walking today. To me they looked like some strange coloured salads, so that's what I'll call the picture.

Hopefully, somebody who knows what they really are will tell me.

Are these those decorative cabbages that people plan along walkways?

Jeg tror at dette er "Pyntekål" Og det navnet passer fint. De pynter opp. Langt inn i vintertiden.

Det ser ut for at Norge og USA er enige her. Et søk på matvareguiden.no gav følgende:

Pyntekål kalles også salatsavoy. Pyntekål er rik på vitamin A og C, kalium, fosfor, kalsium og jern.

Bruksområde.
Det er en dekorativ plante som kan spises dampet, bresert eller hurtigstekt. Den gir sprøhet og farge til salater.

Kanskje jeg skulle tatt dem med meg til middagen? ;-)

I agree that they are decorative cabbages.

so, I actally need to post the salads/cabbages I've seen in Stadtpark in Vienna! I was wondering the same: are they salads, cabbages or some flowers?! maybe I'll get the answer here...

I believe that Dan is right they are decorative cabbage. We have them here as well. Very pretty in the fall.
