Cardoon (Cynara Cardunculus) is a large member of the thistle family, closely related to artichoke. The rib of the leaf is consumed rather than the immature flower bud. This stunning pollinator will need room as it can grow up to six feet in all directions.
What started as a model experimental farm in the 1930s and 1940s, Los Poblanos today strives to preserve the rich agricultural history of our land. A significant percentage of the property is dedicated to organic farming driven by regenerative practices. Food, flowers and lavender are lovingly planted and carefully tended by our dedicated farmers, and find their way into restaurant dishes at Campo, gorgeous bouquets across the property and into our Farm Foods and artisan lavender products.
Inside each packet are seeds from our farm that have been carefully saved from seasons past. As you sow and tend to your new seedlings, know you are connecting to the rich history of Los Poblanos. As we say on the farm, "rooted in history, planting seeds for the future."
Each seed packet features hand-drawn botanical illustrations done by Wes Brittenham, our Director of Horticulture (and lifelong creative).
