Pink Blossom Rhubarb

Rhubarb

Description: Pink Blossom is a new Rhubarb variety that produces extemely sweet tasty fruits that have pink, red or green leaf stalks. As you can probably tell from the name, attractive pink blossom appears during the early spring and stunning larger green foliage. The leaves are very attractive and atrovirens, but they have a level of oxalic acid so high in the leaves that they are slightly poisonous. Hand selected due to it's compact strong and sturdy stems which makes it one of the easiest varieties to grow.

Rhubarb Growing Tips: Rhubarbs need an open, sunny site with moist, but free-draining soil. Avoid frost pockets as the stems are susceptible to frost. Do not harvest during the first year after planting as this will reduce the vigour. Once planted, it should not be moved and appreciates a generous annual mulch of well-rotted compost or manure.
