Glaskin's Purpetual Rhubarb

Description
Rhubarb's an easy plant to grow in the edible landscape—and Glaskin's Purpetual Rhubarb is a top choice for its gorgeous color, taste and fantastic yields. This reliable rhubarb cooks up nicely and never gets bitter. So it's perfect for pies, tarts, jams or fermented for wine, and it's fast growing and reliable. Glaskin's Perpetual is good for late-season harvesting due to its low concentration of oxalic acid. So, you'll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor well into the summer or winter, depending on when you plant. This variety does best in regions with cool, moist summers and winters cold enough to freeze to a depth of several inches. Plant in full sun.
