Round leafed, compact with an upright plant habit, which allows for better drainage. Red blooms.
The plant habit is so ornamental and attractive that many home gardeners prefer to use in flower beds. Choose a rich, fertile loam, preferably one on which cabbages or related cold crops have not been grown the previous year. Likes a sunny, well drained soil with some shelter or semi shade in hot climates. Fertilize just like cabbage and keep well watered during hot summer months.
