Artichoke (Cynara cardunculus) is a perennial that thrives in moist, well-drained soils under full to partial sun. This plant is best known for its edible flower buds, which can be consumed raw or cooked. Its stems can also be used as a celery substitute, added to soups, stews, and salads. Its young leaves are added to salads in small amounts due to its bitter flavor. Its roots are cooked like parsnips, and can be roasted, sautéed, or added to soups and stews.
