If you're referring to the ones that have color in the center, but the whole plant is shaped like a cabbage, that would be ornamental kale.

Did you mean the brassica family? that would include the whole group, the kales, collards, brussels sprouts, cabbages, and so on.

My first thought when I read your question was "Sedum Spectabile," or Autumn Joy Sedum, a very tough and ornamental perennial flower. No food value for humans! Early in the spring it looks like little heads of cabbage coming out of the ground. My first thought, upon seeing them, many years ago, was that they were cabbages. Here in Zone 5 they are past that and the stems are 10 inches tall, but in Upper Mich. maybe the season starts later. Flower heads start forming in the summer, and in early fall, turn reddish or pink, depending on variety. The stems and heads are sturdy after freezing for winter interest in the flower garden. Cut down in spring before the "cabbages" get more than an inch or so in diameter.
