Rhubarb Plants Beginning to Flower

NDSU Extension Service horticulturist Ron Smith explains how to deal with flowering rhubarb.
Rhubarb in Flower

Once established, rhubarb plants will tend to produce seed stalks, flowers, and seeds each season. Cut the stalks as soon as the large pods appear at the base to allow energy to go into producing new leaves. If your rhubarb plant doesn’t produce seed stalks, don’t worry – it will eventually.

For more information on growing rhubarb, check out the NDSU Extension Service publication, "Asparagus and Rhubarb (PDF) ."
