Description:

Harvest your own tender artichokes! Big flower buds that form at the tops of stalks may be cut for eating. If not cut, buds open to spectacular purple, thistle-like flowers, great for arrangements. Unique, highly textured grey-green foliage adds season-long interest to the landscape. Works well in containers. An herbaceous perennial.

Design Ideas: This plant is both ornamental and edible, so it may belong in the veggie garden or the landscape. Artichoke is thistle like and therefore is perfect in the Mediterranean style landscape. Unique foliage makes it visually interesting in the foliage color based landscape. An exceptional container plant for porch or patio with exceptional architectural value. Add to modern landscapes for this reason. It is often found in the traditional herb garden, parterre and potager.

Provide fertile, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular water but tolerates moderate drought; foliage may die back in extreme heat, but new foliage will emerge as temperatures cool. Apply fertilizer in early spring.
