Rhubarb

8.00

Rheum rhabarbarum
  One half of the famous Strawberry Rhubarb pie!  Actually grows really nicely with strawberries, who’d have figured!  Very hardy perennial, beautiful plant, with sour, delicious stalks that are famous in sweet dishes but used traditionally in savory dishes as well. The leaf (non-stalk part) is excellent for compost and soil building (not to be eaten, it is mildly toxic).  

  Excellent potential as companion for orchard trees, seems like no pests or predators, and it’s deep deep roots bring up great minerals from the soil, just like comfrey.  Should be an element in any perennial food garden.  

Size:
About 1-2’ tall, 3’ tall when in flower

Site Preference:
Loves nice soil, but we’re trialing it with varied success in shade, partial shade, and rough soils.  It’s a soil builder for sure.

Hardiness:
Zone 3
