Rheum 'Tanguticum'


By Simbad

Rheum 'Tanguticum' (Rheum palmatum (Chinese rhubarb))

I knew there was a pink :-), grew these from seed ended up with 2 creamy /white and 1 pink they look so good this year at last, think they've taken 6 years though :-)

Worth waiting for Kathy;0)

p.s I have just planted out the geranium cuttings you sent me last year, not sure what colour they were though, do you remember?

It certainly was Carole the leaves are huge!!!!!
Think it was the macrorhizum I sent wasn't it? remember I have them growing along the edge of a border and got mixed up with the colours, so they'll either be pink or white the pinks flowering now and this time of year the leaves are a lighter green than the white, if that helps:-), the white flowers a week or two later, hope you got some of each :-)

Lucky you Dawn bet thats quite a sight!!!!, I was hoping these would all be pink but they do look quite nice together and the flowers seem to last for ages.

The white are nice too though. I like the fact that they dont mind the frost as much as Gunnera too. Yes, really pleased with all mine this year, guess they thrived on all that rain.
