Conquer and divide!

I finally did it. I got out my pitch fork and divided my ornamental rhubarb plant. It was getting huuuge last year, and there was more than one corm popping up through the soil this spring, so it was definitely time for me to conquer and divide itThe roots of rhubarbs, either ornamental or edible, are notoriously long, (like a big rat-tail actually) and sure sure enough, I chopped off two of them by accident. But hopefully they'll bounce back after setting out new roots. Love the huge leaves of this plant in my garden—they start out with a burgundy color, and eventually turn to green and always make  a dramatic statement!
