Incredible Edible Gardens

.Artichokes are so beautiful and so yummy fresh from your garden. I love the different colors it turns. Very drought tolerant. They need a lot of space. Maybe even tucked on a little hillside where you look up at it?

Cynara cardunculus, or cardoon, is also known as an artichoke thistle. It is a member of the sunflower family, and is native to Mediterranean climes. The giant coarse toothed leaves are architectural in form, and incredibly dramatic. A lot of that drama comes from the fact that those leaves are a very bright silvery gray. These silver leaves, in the right light, have a decidedly metallic cast.
