Cardoon, Cynara Cardunculus


In stock



We offer this plant as an ornamental because it makes a striking centrepiece in large pots or beds. For those of you who like to experiment, it is also edible. . Cardoons are a type of thistle in the sunflower family and are closely related to artichokes. They’re also known as the artichoke thistle. But instead of eating the flower buds as with artichokes, the stems are the tasty part of cardoons.
