In fact, rhubarb is known affectionately as pie plant by gardeners and country folk.
Many plants such as geraniums, agyranthemums and the sweetly-scented cherry pie plant, or heliotrope, can be propagated from cuttings and overwintered in a frost-free place ready for planting up in containers and hanging baskets next spring.
Also known as pie plant, rhubarb matches well with apples, oranges, plums, other berries, cinnamon and sour cream.
