Description
 
Fantastic ornamental rhubarb which we had the good fortune to see blooming in the wild along a river above Kangding in Sichuan in 2006.  The Tibetans had harvested the flower stalks on the near side but the far side was a spectacle with large hand-sized overlapping cream-yellow bracts on 3'+ stems.
