Default Artichokes

I planted some artichokes in a container garden last spring. The
directions said they wouldn't bear until the second year. They put out
lush foliage, but, as expected, no artichokes. The recent cold spell
has killed the foliage.

Will it come back from the roots in the spring, or is this just too
cold a climate for artichokes?

If you mulched the ground perhaps. But you really need zone 8. I see
where they are only grown in California commercially, so even Florida
must have some problem with them - it may be too hot. Let us know
later this year.
