Rhubarb

You will find Rhubarb roots available in the early spring, because that is when the plants are dormmant, so that is the time to plant. Whether the big box stores carry these roots I've not seen, although once one had some potted Rhubarb.
Potted Rhubarb can be planted anytime. Starting Rhubarb from seed can be done in the spring or fall with fall being the more better time since then the newly germinated plants do not have to also compete with the normally hot, dry summer weather.
