Rheum ssp. Zack's grandma Barbara-Anne grew this variety on her homestead near Poplar Hill. It has long since been used in a multitude of crisps, jams, tarts, sauces and pies, enjoyed throughout the generations. Rhubarb is nutritious, incredibly easy to grow, and sports a showy bloom appreciated by both pollinators and humans. This perennial vegetable creates a lush, delicious ground cover.
