Dwarf Selection of Sunchoke with Bright Yellow Flowers and Thick Dense Small Tubers

This is a great ornamental sunchoke which spreads slowly producing loads of small teardrop shaped tubers close to the surface of the soil and bright yellow flowers along the top of the plants. The flower occurs early in August and September. It has clean foliage free of mildew.Its straight growth habit make it an ideal sunchoke in a mixed flower bed or alone as an accent plant. The flowers attract a host of butterflies and bees.  The tubers are completely edible but unlike our other selections this one is more fibrous with a piney aftertaste. Some people like this one for its ease of harvest and small tubers which can be used as is in soup and salads. It also is one of the few artichokes selected just for its ornamental appeal. It was found as a chance seedling in one of our seedling beds where the flowering and tuber production occurred at at least a month to six weeks earlier than the other selections. Tubers are usually 3 inches long and roughly 1/2 inch wide.(Ships dormant in spring and fall from Oct. to Dec.and again March to May.)
