(Circa 13th c - Italy) Cynara scolymus , (Circa 13th Century) This variety of Italian origin, aka the Artichoke of Rome, is a handsome plant to look at, with silverish-green leaves, slightly smaller globe-like buds streaked with purple & shorter than Green Globe, will mature slightly later than the green types, but said to have an arguably finer flavour. Also, the artichoke bud (the flower of the plant), is a huge attraction for our beleaguered bee population which can always use more help. This is a perennial which comes back each year to produce a reliable harvest of food. - Ht: 1.5 mtr , Seed Count Approx - 10 avg,..........
