What Rhubarb herb Is:

Don't you dare make a pie with this species of rhubarb. If you do, you won't find it very filling for very long. Medicinal rhubarb, as It's known, is a strong laxative. In China, where it is native, the plant is called da huang, or "great yellow," a reference to its yellow rhizome, which Asian herbalists have ground up into a purgative pow-der for the past 5,000 years. By contrast, edible rhubarb (R. rhabarharum or R. x hybridum) has been cultivated in Europe since the 1700s. Its root, too, was tried as an herbal laxative, but, except perhaps in large quantities, it's not very effective. Quite the contrary, the root is poisonous, as are the leaves in large quantities. The stalks are the edible parts of the plant.
