Rhubarb ‘Holsteiner Blut’ is a vigorous perennial with long, flavourful, bright red, edible stems, topped with large glossy, jagged green leaves. Rhubarb is an irregular clump-forming plant that will spread after two (2) – five (5) years, so plant in an open moist, well-drained area of the garden in a sunny spot. Once planted, rhubarb should not be moved. Rhubarb stems are boiled as a dessert and added to other fruits, pies, salads and flavouring for food and drinks. Leaves are poisonous so dispose of carefully.
