A long-lived perennial, rhubarb is hardy, adaptable and easy to grow. It's also one of the first edibles that are ready to harvest in spring. ‘Chipman's Canada Red’ is a particularly sweet variety, and the bright red stems make desserts that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Three 2-year-old, bareroot plants. Hardy in Zones 3-8. Not sure of your zone? Our Zone Finder tool can help!

Comments about : Rhubarb, Set of 3:
Only 2 of my plants emerged from the ground and now those two have withered and died. I carefully prepared the soil and have never had a problem growing rhubarb before. I didn't receive my rhubarb, strawberries and asparagus until the last day of May, which is way beyond the planting time where I live. So anyway, I now have a plot that is empty and I've learned to shop locally for my plants.

The rhubarb rhizomes arrived in somewhat rotted condition. I cut off the rotted parts and planted the rhizomes according to instructions, but not 1 of the 3 plants even so much as sprouted a single stalk. I need to get my money back or a live shipment that actually grows.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

What's there to say? Large roots arrived and already have put out tons of large leaves. I can't wait for next season to taste the rhubarb.

Rhubarb is growing strong!
By MJ the gardener

I have wanted to plant rhubarb for some time and tried planting some last year with no success. I decided to give it one more try and this time I ordered the rhubarb from Gardeners Supply Company. I couldn't be more pleased. I planted it about a month ago and the rhubarb has taken off and is looking very healthy. I gave this 4 stars, because it's still young and I want to see how it performs over the coming year, but it looks so healthy that I am confident the plants will do well and bring many years of rhubarb for my family.
I had gotten a half dozen rhubarb roots from another retailer and they were desicated on arrival so I ordered from Gardeners Supply and what a difference! They were huge, rock-solid, with growth nodes evident and so healthy I couln't believe the fine quality. They are now producing bright red stems with huge leaves and are so healthy! My husband loves strawberry & rhubarb pies and shortcakes as well as spooning over ice cream and he is delighted that I got these for him. I also got asparagus and they were just as high quality. We are very pleased with Gardeners Supply.
