Rheum 'Ace of Hearts'
Common Name: Ornamental Rhubarb Family: Polygonaceae (The Buckwheat Family)

Rheum  'Ace of Hearts'
Zoom In Photo:

I'm excited to offer this excellent ornamental rhubarb. The large bold spade-shaped foliage emerges entirely reddish in the spring. While the tops of the leaves fade to green, the reverses remain boldly dark red. With its upright behaviour the leaves continuously show off their burgundy-coloured reverses to great effect. Pale pink flower spikes in summer. Rich, well-drained soil in full to part shade. A great focal point plant.
