Glaskins Perpetual’ Rhubarb
Rheum rhabarbarum 'Glaskins Perpetual'
As well as being a gorgeous, dramatic, giant leaved plant in the garden, rhubarb is typically used for jam, simmered into a sauce, or used in pies or other desserts, but also works well as an accompaniment to savory foods. Rhubarb is most tender and flavourful in Spring and early Summer, but can be used throughout the season.
