Cynara scolymus - Great tasting and stunning addition to the vegetable, or even flower garden. Globe artichokes are perennials, producing year after year, so they make good value plants too. This is a late-season variety of globe artichoke with huge, green, succulent, delicious hearts. Globe artichokes need to be planted where they will stay and require a sunny site with reliable moisture. They are tolerant of salty air and will grow quite happily near the sea. Maximum height 1.3 metres. Priced for: a 1 litre pot.
