Well, to pick some nits, eating an artichoke is really eating parts
of the inflorescence - the receptacle (heart) and phyllaries ("leaves")
whereas the flowers themselves are *not* eaten - they are the prickly
"choke" that you remove! But add artichoke to the edible flowers
list anyway. I love them!- NH
