Betty, thanks for blogging about this artichoke. It's beautiful. I love the color of the buds. I have a green globe in the front yard and a cardoon. This is their second year in the ground and their humongous. They give my yard a pre-historic look - When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth.

I am amazed that artichokes grow out here in the heat but they do. Actually I like to keep mine under small fruit trees that shed their leaves during the winter. That way, the 'choke gets good sun during the winter but obtains some relief from the heat during the summer. My plants grow to about 5 feet across !! I have been able to grow new plants by harvesting the seeds.

Betty, do you know if anyone sells seed for this variety? Artichokes are my favorite vegetable so I’m always working on better growing here in zone 7!
