Haven’t we all had a grandma that made us rhubarb jams?
An easy to grow perennial, this plant is notably ideal for Guerilla Gardening. Under the cover of the night, you subtly go plant a rhubarb seedling. The small plant will go unnoticed until, a year or two later, it starts growing abundant and delicious leaves. With your care, it will be so healthy and thriving that the City won’t want to remove it. Then, you will harvest the stems to offer to your grandma, who will return in a Mason jar as jam. Isn’t this life cycle beautiful?
