We had the privilege of growing this "Show Stopper" in our front yard for several years. We always let a few bloom, but removed most to eat! One year we were out of state during the blooming season. Sad to say, all bloomed. That is a Death message to the plant. We lost it that year. It was 6 feet high and about 8-10 feet in diameter. Be sure to allow ample room for growth! It literally stopped traffic on our busy street!

A great ornamental plant with beautiful blooms, it needs a long, mild growing season to produce artichokes.
