The Blossom of the Rhubarb

The illustration shows that inconspicuous character of the individual blossoms of the rhubarb, and the way in which they are massed together, as is usual with very small flowers. In hybridizing the rhubarb it is only necessary to dust one head of flowers against another. Of course self-fertilization may take place in many cases, and it will be necessary to examine the seedlings themselves to determine which ones are hybridized.
