Rheum delavayi - BWJ7592

Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Price: £10.00
An unlikely looking miniature rhubarb I collected at high altitude on Da Xue Shan at 4400m, while struggling with the altitude. Where it formed prostrate rosettes of basal leaves with red venation, only 10cm long with pink flowering stems to a mere 15cm tall, growing in ravenous scree conditions. Expect larger dimensions in cultivation, where it is much sought after and surprisingly scarce. A well drained soil is essential, in good light, and a lack of competition from neighbouring plants.
