Cardoon (Globe Artichoke)

Cardoon (Globe Artichoke)

Have you been searching for something really out of the ordinary to offer your customers? Cardoon, also known as Globe Artichoke plant, is the perfect solution to those ho-hum garden plans.

These striking ornamental and edible plants are prized for their pollinator-friendly habit, grand presence in the landscape, as well as a unique form for cut-flower arrangements. Plus, Cardoon features soft, silvery foliage that highlights the enormous height and stateliness of its straight, 8' stems. A conversation starter, indeed.
