Not only an impressive cropper but also an ornamental feature, you can grow tall and upright Artichoke ‘Imperial Star’ in rows on the allotments or as a dual purpose feature at the back of a sunny border. The flower buds are large and flavoursome, held above tall study stems during summer. Simply pick them when ripe and enjoy the petals steamed with a dressing or melted garlic butter - the heart of the flower head (artichoke hearts) can be pickled and preserved for later use in salads and on pizza. These reliable perennial plants will produce a good crop every summer for up to four years. Height: 1.8m (6’). Spread: 75cm (30”).
