If anyone can find examples like these pictures in the PNW it is you Brian.
When I lived in Issaquah, just east of Seattle, artichokes and Cordyline australis would get damaged or killed by the arctic storms that came through every few years, so with the size and healthy look of those plants in these pictures this must be a very good climate spot.
I just recently saw some artichokes at a community garden at Ocean Shores, Washington that looked very healthy. I asked the lady who manages the garden about them, she said they do really well along the beaches. That was surprising to me since I thought they required a lot of heat to produce the flower head big enough to be edible. When you go to the ocean beaches along the Washington State coast you have to dress like going to the mountains with the cold air that blows off of the ocean most of the time.
