The Most Asked About Plant at the Library

Print Email

A striking plant with many small white flowers and large dark green leaves may catch your eye at the Sunnyside library garden. Lots of people ask the name of this perennial.

The answer: Crambe Cordifolia or colewort, also known as flowering or greater sea kale. It's a hearty plant, that needs lot of space to grow, and it's doing well in full sun at library. 

And a note from the hard-working volunteers: please don't raid the gardens, the flowers are for all of us to enjoy!
