Ornamental rhubarb are large, architectural plants; foliage, colors, and flower spires are all dramatic. Grow them in sun or part shade on moist but well-drained soil; roots should be mulched to keep cool in summer.

Chinese rhubarb is a long-lived perennial that has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Colorful, reddish new growth develops into large, glaucous palmate leaves with purplish undersides. Interesting flowering panicles are followed by attractive seed heads.
