Jerusalem artichoke produces bright yellow flowers from edible tubers.

Jerusalem artichokes are part of a familiar family of flowers we have grown to love and continue to plant: the Helianthus family, specifically Helianthus tuberosus. Our common sunflower is part of this family.

There are many varieties of the helianthus family, including the annual sunflower and many varieties of the perennial sunflower.
