Walking in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago I was immediately drawn to this lovely copper-coloured maple leaf contrasting with the pink painted asphalt of the road crossing onto which it had fallen.

These giant leaves were growing alongside a stream in a garden – I think it could be Chinese Rhubarb Rheum palmatum a robust, herbaceous perennial that produces rich, purple/dark green foliage. In summer, it has large spikes of bright pink flowers that push up through the middle of the clumps. It is a moisture-loving plant that will make a dramatic impact in borders and bog gardens.

This is an ornamental plant that does not offer any edible produce. Although it is related to the common garden rhubarb plant, it does not produce the same edible red stems. This plant has no edible parts and the leaves are actually poisonous if consumed, as with all varieties of rhubarb.

For those of us in the northern hemisphere it will be a long time until spring, but  if you have some autumn leaves to share, then please visit Verena’s site and join in. She’ll be very happy to see you.
