Rheum Tanguticum


By Simbad

Rheum Tanguticum (Rheum palmatum (Chinese rhubarb))

Grew this from seed around 6 years ago now, flowered for the first time last year, ended up with three plants 2 pink and one white, love the leaves when they're just emerging such a lovely colour.

Thanks everyone :-)
It does look quite dry Amy, but is really heavy clay soil just weeded round it the other day and is moist under the surface, not boggy though, must admit never water them have to fend for themselves and seem to be thriving.
