Prizm Kale is a 2016 All American Selections winner with attractive curly moss-like leaves with nearly stemless stalks. Some gardeners refer to it as the “Parsley-Leaved” Kale. It is an edible that we love using as an ornamental. The thing I like most about this nice and compact variety, is that it grows well through the heat of summer without bolting (flowering). It lends a very unique foliar element to beds and borders. As an edible, Prizm Kale can be harvested multiple times and has a rich gently nutty flavor that gardeners tout as sweeter than most kales. I was introduced to this plant by the talented Janet Draper, Horticulturist of the Smithsonian Institution.
