Thank goodness for kale. It's one of the few plants available to add a fresh burst of color and life to the fall landscape! Its leaves come with beautiful variegations in pinks, purples, and reds that blend beautifully with changing autumn foliage. Plant it in spring or in the fall after you tear out tired or frost-damaged annuals such as marigolds and impatiens. It likes rich, well-drained but moist soil.

Add flowering kale to a border with leadplant for a stunning pairing. Leadplant's blue flowers look great against gray-green kale leaves; then leadplant's leaves turn red and add another dimension of interest.Chrysanthemum
These two fall classics combine beautifully. Yellow and red mums are great picks to add an extra shot of interest to pink and purple kale varieties.Pansy
Complement kale's colorful leaves with bright pansy blooms. Choose pink-flowering types for a single-color look, or go bold and mix purple pansies with white kale.
