A classic American variety. Looks just like rhubarb with striking bright scarlet stalks and dark green leaves. Red veins extend into dark-green, savoyed leaves. Perfect blend of ornamental and edible qualities with a sweet, delicious flavor. Holds well in the garden producing ample harvests. Freezes well.
Grow 1ft apart in full sun in well drained soils.
