My dad grew up in East Carolina, and always speaks of a collard variety he grew up eating. He says it was 2-3' in diameter with a small head and brilliant blue, purple, yellow, and of course green colors. I have been trying to help him find the name of it. He grew up close to Ayden, but says the last time he saw any of these was years ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated........

Well, Mike, good luck! I've never heard of multicolored collards, just kale.

Georgia Southern collards- creole - when mature, they will turn blue, purple, yellow(frost bite), and green shads after a nice light freeze in late fall.
