Rheum rhabarbarum

Rheum rhabarbarum

Common name rhubarb
Family polygonaceae
Life cycle perennial
Size to 3'
Light sun-part shade

Rhubarb accompanies asparagus in the corner of our vegetable garden assigned to perennial vegetables. For some reason, our plant, which has been around for quite a number of years, has never been happy enough to get huge, although we've had a few harvests through the years.
