georgous speciman plants in garden

We grew this for 2 years and the second years the old plants went to flower heads, tasting like a broccoli and rapini cross. We blanched them and tossed in garlic oil with lemon juice and served with pasta. My 4 year old daughter ate a large bowl full by herself. Wonderful plants! They need some shade here over the summer, but then we live in central California where it gets to 114 degree F regularly in summer.
