Rhubarb 'Crimson Cherry' Rhubarb Crowns
Potted in a gallon nursery pot Crimson Cherry Rhubarb produces copious, thick, deep red stalks that are both tender and sweet. Very hardy and easy to grow, it is an excellent addition to the home garden that will remain productive for decades. Easy to grow, rhubarb thrives in cool locations and full sun, but in warmer climates, plants benefit from light shade but form longer, thinner stems. Rhubarb needs deep, moist but well-drained soil, and is generally trouble-free.
