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.

Rheum ‘Ace of Hearts’ full sun  partial shade

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.
