Rhubarb (Rheum rhabarbarum) Perennial, zones 3-8, -40 to 15F winter temperatures. As you can see, it is a perennial that needs a winter cold period...or does it? When grown from seed, it can be grown as an ANNUAL in hotter parts of the country. The plant itself can tolerate "winters" above 32 degrees with brief dips below that and continue growing. Started in the warm part of fall (not excessive heat) it can then be grown through the winter months and harvested in the late spring before the summer heat kills it off. The stalks, which are the only edible part of the plant...the leaves are poisonous....are numerous though thin. I prefer the thinner stalks anyway because they are less stringy. In fact, it's even difficult for me to type the word rhubarb without my mouth watering. It's tartness is heaven in straight rhubarb pie, strawberry rhubarb pie, rhubarb sauce, cake, crumble. As a kid, I would wander all over the neighborhood chewing on a stalk of it. It needs full to part sun, water when dry, and fairly good soil. If the soil is not fertile, add organic matter. So if you are a northern transplant to the south and miss fresh rhubarb or a southern who likes quirky vegetables and likes to amaze family and mystify friends, give this a try. Or if you're a northerner in the north that likes to start things from seed, again, give it a try. In the north, start these no later than August and they will establish enough to make it through the winter and then they will continue to grow yearly after that. 100 seeds.

Germination instructions will come with the seed.

Tip: perennials may be started in July for planting out in late summer/early fall, approximately 6 weeks before the average first frost date. They can take the place of spent annuals in the garden which maximizes garden space. They will have taken up no room during their first year and will still bloom the second year from seed.

Seeds are shipped in a bubble wrap envelope with growing instructions for $2.00. Unlimited seeds ship for this price. Seeds ship free with plants and other non-plant items from my store.

I ship worldwide for flat rate of $3.00 for unlimited quantity of seeds, but NOTE: I am not responsible for long delivery times due to customs or slow boats or if your plant inspectors confiscate or kill the seeds. It usually takes 1-2 weeks for delivery to most parts of the world with it taking closer to 3 weeks to Australia and New Zealand.

DISCLAIMER: Buyer assumes full responsibility for their state or country's laws concerning introducing plants and seeds into their state or country. Sometimes, even innocent looking plants can become a noxious weed or disrupt the ecosystem they are introduced into. Check with your Agricultural Department to see if this species is forbidden...BEFORE YOU BUY

Germination and growing are dependent on the care the buyer gives it. I germination test the seeds myself and know they germinate. It is up to the buyer to provide the correct conditions for sprouting and growth.

Seeds ship free with plants and malas. Malas ship free with plants.

My plants are inspected by NYS Ag. & Markets and I am a licensed grower.

Thanks and happy growing.
