male and female rhubarb plants?
I just purchased a rhubarb plant at our Farmers Market. The lady in front of me also bought one. She wanted a male plant, said she had a female one at home and needed a male to make more plants? She said the female plant have the flower and send up a bambo looking shoot? The males have the red stalks? Is she right. I've never heard of this but then I've never grown rhubarb before. The woman selling the plants said she'd never heard of it before and she's been selling and growing plants for years.
