In this combo at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in Brooklyn, New York, the white midribs of the dinosaur kale (Brassica oleracea ‘Lacinato’, annual) are echoed by the blooms of both the Diamond Frost euphorbia (Euphorbia ‘Inneuphdia’, Zones 10-11) in the background and the white alyssum (Lobularia maritima cv., annual) in the foreground. Feather grass (Stipa tenuissima, Zones 7-11) adds a pleasing dash of contrasting texture–soft and wispy against the rough-and-tumble leaves of the kale.

    Great combination. I love that Euphorbia used as a bedding plant.
