Turkey Rhubarb, Rheum palmatum

$6.00

Turkey Rhubarb, Rheum palmatum

DESCRIPTION AND CULTURE: Hardy perennial with foliage growing to 18” tall and flowering stalk to 3-4 feet. Turkey rhubarb looks like a rougher version of the edible petiole version of rhubarb. Grows very similarly, but the flower is more beautiful, flowering a creamy white stalk that lasts for about a month. May re-seed gently if the stalks are not cut back before seeding.

Part Used: Root

FUNCTION: Used in small amounts to maintain healthy bowel function.

Too much can cause cramping, so best blended with carminative herbs such as fennel.
