Rhubarb – Rehum x cultorum

Cold hardy perennial to zone  3 . An essential perennial vegetable for the home garden.  Edible stalks are used alone in jams or usually mixed with strawberries. Stalks are also used in rhubarb stew or even eaten alone or dipped in something sweet to balance out the sour taste. Large leaves can provide a tropical feel to the landscape, specially when planted along side cold hardy bamboo.
