at Dunedin Botanic Gardens, New Zealand. I love their silver foliage and they become large imposing plants that add character to the garden. When the flowers develop they’re fascinating too. Photos by Liz.
Disclaimer: I think these are cardoon rather than globle artichoke – I’ll know for sure once I see the flowers. For this post I’m assuming they’re cardoon.
Cardoon can look silver or bluish, depending on the light.
