My mother just bought some flowers, and would like them identifying. She thinks they are brassicas, but would like to know what variety...
Anyone any ideas? Thanks

The single species Brassica oleracea contains a huge range of different forms grown as food crops, including cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, etc.
The ones in your picture are usually called "ornamental cabbage" or "flowering kale." There are many different varieties available with flower colours from purple to white.
They are just as easy to grow as any other types of cabbage, if you want some in your own garden.
