Rhubarb Roots – Order Now
Enjoy ripe rhubarb before all your other summer crops are ready.
Perennial rhubarb plants are hardy, long-lived additions to your yard. Weeks before anything else ripens, you can enjoy the flavor of rhubarb’s crisp tart red stalks. Handsome rhubarb plants, with their dramatic, crinkled green leaves atop crimson red stalks fit into the most sophisticated flower or shrub borders, foundation plantings, or a big container.
Cook the thick, fleshy stalks of this striking plant for the traditional and delicious pleasures of rhubarb pies, tarts and crumbles; or make sauce or stewed rhubarb. You can even make rhubarb wine or jam. You can freeze or can tasty stewed rhubarb to enjoy later in the year. Remember: rhubarb stalks are the only edible part of the plant; leaves contain poisonous oxalic acid, so be sure to snip them off and discard.
Easily grown, with virtually no pests and diseases, rhubarb is extremely cold hardy (to zone 2), and grows best where temperatures are below 40° F for several months in the winter. If properly planted and given a modest amount of attention, rhubarb plants will last a lifetime.
