Rhubarb

 
Easily grown in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best grown from root divisions (a section of root with one or more buds or eyes). Plant root sets 3-4' apart in early spring.
 
Do not harvest stalks until second year. Divide root crowns every 3 to 4 years. Needs even moisture. Promptly remove all flower/seed stalks as soon as they appear.
This cold hardy plant needs a period of winter dormancy.
 
Garden Uses
Grow on the periphery of the vegetable garden where roots can remain undisturbed. Rhubarb can also be planted in a corner of the perennial border for its ornamental foliage value (large green leaves contrasting with deep red stalks) with no intent to harvest the stalks.
