Three rooted perennial green tree collard plants in 2.5″ peat pots. These plants are very similar to purple tree collards except they don’t have the purple coloration and their flavor is perhaps a bit milder. They are vigorous plants, and like purple tree collards, rarely if ever go to seed in the spring. They are hardy to around 25° F.
They are significantly different than Merritt Collards. Merritt Collards are bushier, have larger leaves (up to 2+ ft.) and fatter stalks, and don’t tend to get so tall because they are so big and usually fall over first. Merritt collards also go to seed in the spring, whereas green tree collards typically do not and continue to put all their energy into growing leaves. They are both exciting plants to grow in the garden.
