Listing Detail Tabs

Cardoons are a striking landscape plant with bold purple thistle-like flowers. Plants have large grey-green densely pointed and divided leaves. They are not prickly!

Bumblebees love them and feed on the flowers.

They are in the cynara family, along with globe artichokes.

They are hardy perennials and will take two years to reach their full height. At full height leaves are giant 1.5 metres and multiple flowers on each stem reach 2 metres in height. They are large, bold plants for landscaping in large gardens.

You are bidding on a potted plant. They have 3 or more leaves about 10 cm long. They should grow quickly once planted out.

I am willing to combine with other purchases for delivery.
