Daily Flower Candy: Rheum palmatum ‘Red Herald’

Reading time 1 minute

Proving that not all rhubarbs are best stewed and smothered in crumble and custard, Rheum palmatum ‘Red Herald’ put on a tremendous show at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens last week. Stunning but space-hungry architectural plants, rheums have many great qualities for the larger garden including fine, often colourful foliage, bold flower heads and good overall shape. They need a continuously moist spot and lots of room to develop their full potential, but when they do they’re magnificent creatures.
