Things are getting a little creepy in Donald's garden!  Must be close to Halloween!

Cardoon (Cynara cardunculus)
I usually give up trying to grow a plant, if I haven't had success after three tries.  This is my third time growing Cardoon and so far so good!  The blooms of Cynara cardunculus typically don't bloom until their second year.  I'm crossing my fingers because the purple thistle like flowers are spectacular.
