The Victoria Rhubarb, or Rheum Victoria, is a beautiful perennial with massive, heart-shaped, ruffled leaves perched at the end of each 7 to 15 inch long, greenish-red rhubarb stalk. The stalks of the rhubarb plant have a scrumptious, tart flavor that is perfect for sauces, pies, jellies and jams, and is classically paired with sweet strawberries and cherries. One added benefit of the Victoria Rhubarb is that it does not have stringy stalks.

These showy, fluttering, deciduous plants also have stunning ornamental value and are a great addition to any perennial garden. It produces spiky, white-to-reddish bracts that appear in mid-spring. Rhubarb can be cut and frozen for up to six months, cooked, or canned. One plant easily produces dozens of stalks you can enjoy all season.

Victoria Rhubarb Plant Care

The Victoria Rhubarb grows quickly into a large, leafy mound of up to 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. You should plant your rhubarb 3 to 6 feet apart in late autumn or early spring in an area with full or partial sun and fertile, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Rhubarb roots will rot if they are exposed to standing water. Plant rhubarb crowns while the roots are still dormant. It is important to note that the leaves of the Victoria Rhubarb are poisonous if ingested. Only the stems should be consumed.

Growing Victoria Rhubarb Plants

You should wait 3 years to harvest from our Victoria Rhubarbs. You can harvest from mature plants for up to eight weeks in the spring through summer, but when only slender stalks remain, stop harvesting your Victoria Rhubarb for the season. After you are finished harvesting stalks, feed and water your rhubarb, and cut away any remaining stalks that appear. Your rhubarb will need some winter chill to create thick stems and vivid color. In areas with mild winter, your Victoria Rhubarb may not die back completely, and will likely produce thinner stalks.

Growing Victoria Rhubarb in Pots

It is common to plant your Victoria Rhubarb in a pot or container. Especially in areas with extremely cold winters. Your container should be at least 20 by 20 inches. It's a great way to enjoy the plant if your garden space is small. You should keep the soils around your rhubarb moist, but not wet. Plants need extra water the first two years until they are established. Mulching will help keep the soils around your rhubarb cool and moist.

Feeding Victoria Rhubarb Plants

Your Victoria Rhubarb needs organic matter to thrive. Compost, well-rotted manure, or anything with lots of organic matter should be mixed into the soils at planting. Feed your rhubarb yearly with an all purpose garden fertilizer.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
