With some bolting ornamental cabbage “blooms”, I finally thought I had something interesting enough to share on this fun meme; In a Vase on Monday, hosted by Cathy at Rambling In the Garden. Supposedly, the common name of this particular cabbage is “Stork Cabbage”. I still don’t know why… by now it’s certainly leggy enough to perhaps qualify for such a name. When I first bought it, they looked like giant white roses.
I had five cabbage stalks, which was enough for two vases. I also employed a few marbled leaves of Arum italicum, and a lone broken off leaf from a variegated Stinking Iris – Iris foetida variegata. (Such a rude name for such a lovely plant, in my humble opinion.)
