Rheum

Ornamental Rhubarb

Kin to the edible Rhubarb, these ornamental perennials spawn large brawny leafage and tall intriguing floral spires. Rheum can be utilized as a specimen in the mixed border, the landscape or skirting the water’s edge. They require deep, rich soil and appreciate mulching in the summer to keep their roots cool, as they detest extreme heat.

Lustrous, crinkled and richly red when they first unfurl in the spring, large spade-shaped leaves make a bold statement all season long. The grandiose foliage matures to a handsome deep green on top and grows upright, flaunting prominent veins and opulent burgundy undersides, while starry pale pink blooms on tall flower spikes add a dainty touch.

Blooms June – July.

Size: 4'–5' high x 3'–5' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Viola ‘Rebecca’ for it's sweet, delectable scent and tidy compact clumps of dapper evergreen foliage. All are equally captivating, though no two are alike, each ebullient white flower showcases a creamy lemon flushed center and irregularly patterned, deep violet edges. This sweet smelling Viola should be ensconced near a well-traveled path or seating area, where its plentiful color flecked flowers can be easily relished ‘till the first hard frost.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
