Popular variety that produces a high yield of large heads with thick fleshy scales on relatively compact plants.
The thistle-like blue heads also look attractive in the flower garden.
The hardiest artichoke variety, to zone 6. Likes sun but not excessive heat, so give afternoon shade in hot-summer areas.
Days to maturity: 120 days
As 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.
To get artichokes the first year, start indoors in a warm place, then harden off and transplant outside while weather is still cold, so the plant thinks it's been through the winter. Or plant out after frost and get chokes the 2nd year.
Artichokes like good soil and good drainage.
Give the crown protection from cold and wet, planting on a slight mound and working in compost and some sand or gravel near the surface.
