Interesting plant combination: Rhubarb & cardoon or globe artichoke -- I think it would look even better with some tall flowers in the back, cosmos? Maybe with an additional layer of lovage?

Incredible Edible Gardens

.Artichokes are so beautiful and so yummy fresh from your garden. I love the different colors it turns. Very drought tolerant. They need a lot of space. Maybe even tucked on a little hillside where you look up at it?

Cynara cardunculus, or cardoon, is also known as an artichoke thistle. It is a member of the sunflower family, and is native to Mediterranean climes. The giant coarse toothed leaves are architectural in form, and incredibly dramatic. A lot of that drama comes from the fact that those leaves are a very bright silvery gray. These silver leaves, in the right light, have a decidedly metallic cast.
