If you like large leaves and spectacular flowers you have to grow this form of ornamental rhubarb. It forms huge clumps of large, often purple backed soft leaves, supporting columns of 6ft tall red flowers. An excellent spot plant for a lawn specimen that requires plenty of water to be impressive. Grow in good soil that is deep and moisture retentive but well draining.
