Chipman Red Rhubarb is a perennial that is commonly grown for its edible qualities, although it does have ornamental merits as well. The large red stalks are usually harvested from early to late summer. The stalks have an exceptionally sweet taste and a crisp texture.

Chipman Red Rhubarb features bold spikes of white flowers rising above the foliage from early to mid summer. Its enormous crinkled round leaves remain green in color throughout the season. The red stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant. This is an herbaceous perennial with a rigidly upright and towering form. Its wonderfully bold, coarse texture can be very effective in a balanced garden composition. This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and can be pruned at anytime. Deer don’t particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
