Tree Collards live as a perennial in zones 7 or 8 and warmer (below 20 F will damage the plant). Can grow to over 10 feet tall, if it's staked. Leaves are like a flattened kale/collard leaf, but generally sweeter flavored. Leaves and stems turn a lovely purple in cooler weather. Thrives in shade to partial shade, yet can withstand temperartures up to 100 F. You will be sent 3 unrooted cuttings that will grow roots if you put them in well-drained soil and keep them in a warm, but shady spot. Once they are rooted, they just continue to growand grow with stems becoming woody. They will occaisionally flower, but seed is rare. HEIRLOOM. SSF.
