Better Homes and Gardens says: "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! It's 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."
