|Storage Temperature: 36 - 38 F
|Ethylene Sensitive: Yes
|Description: A very large (2 to 4 inches across)
spiny, thistle shaped head with a long multi-thread blossom emerging from the center.
|Colors: Green globe head with blue or purple
|Design Notes: A wonderful, bold, textured focal
point. Unopened artichoke buds sold as produce can be used in floral design.
However, fully opened blossoms with long stems are preferred. The artichoke foliage
adds a dramatic touch to floral arrangements.
|Purchasing Hints: Purchase fully opened
|Conditioning: Remove all foliage that will be
below the water line. Cut under water with a sharp knife. Hydrate in a solution of
warm water and commercial floral preservative / floral food for two hours before storage
