This ornamental form of rhubarb has large pointy-edged leaves tinged with bronzy-red in spring, later becoming green. Bizarre spikes of flowers tower overhead in summer, in shades of soft pink to red, and these are interesting as cut flowers. Plants must have a rich, moist site to perform their best. Clumps may be divided in early spring, but this is seldom necessary. Roots have been used medicinally in China, but the stems are not edible. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
