This unique and valuable perennial features large, deeply toothed, silver-green foliage topped with striking, large flower buds - the Artichoke! If not harvested, they will open to showy, 6” diameter, purple flowers. Artichokes can reach 4 ft. or more in height and can be grown where temperatures fall as low as minus 10°F. In cold regions, cut artichokes to the ground in the fall and mulch heavily for winter protection.
