Globe artichoke plants produce a stunning display of flowers in summer, with long and thin blue, mauve, or purple petals that capture the sunlight and are loved by bees and other beneficial insects.
The display of flowers is reason enough to have a globe artichoke plant, or two, in a garden or allotment, but the flower buds are also edible (you may like to see this fried artichoke recipe). The flower buds taste best when young at golf ball size or just a little larger.
