Add some delicious artichokes to your own vegetable garden
This variety produces uniform plant sizes
High germination rate
Grows to maturity in 150-180 days
This improved artichoke is such a pretty plant that it is also sold as an ornamental. Bold, deeply lobed silvery-green leaves grow in a giant rosette that can get 4 feet tall. In my opinion, artichokes are the most beautiful vegetable out there! They have magnificent blooms that all the other flowers are jealous of! After your first harvest, you can cut the plants down to 1-2 inches for a 2nd harvest. Harvest: 85 days. Hardiness zone: 7 - 9 (or annual elsewhere). Light requirements: sun . . . Soil / water: average.

Turns out the seeds they sent me were poppy seeds what I thought was the begining of an artichoke just bloomed into a beautiful poppy it's a shame that I ordered artichoke seeds and that was what it said on the seed pack. The plants are very healthy though so if they had been the right ones I would assume those would be just as good. Did not know until today that the seeds were mismarked. Picture shows the beautiful poppies
Horrible. About half of the seeds were destroyed by the time they arrived, so out of the 75 I ended up with about 35-40 that were worth a darn. Of those I have tried planting about half and have had 1 sprout. I started them inside, in a window greenhouse - just like my other seeds (not bought by these people and are growing). I am not happy with this purchase and will not be buying anything from them again.
Way better than seed packages from Lowes. The seed packs from Lowes were hard to start and quickly died. These seeds sprout promptly and grow hearty and fast.
