A vegetable widely cultivated in Victorian England that is related to the Globe Artichoke - except it's the stems that are cooked and eaten. As a vegetable it was featured by Harry Dodson in the BBC's Victorian Kitchen Garden series, and was also championed by Clarissa Dickson Wright of Two Fat Ladies fame.

It is the perfect vegetable to grow in the herbaceous border as it is perennial in habit, with a very attractive pink/purple flower and very striking leaves.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).
