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?

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.
