Rhubarb root is a dye that every dyer should have in their dye cupboard.  This is because it is both  a strong dye  and substantive, that is no mordant is required and it gives two if not three different colours as it gives a mustard yellow which turns a surprising dusty pink with ammonia added or a rusty  orange with washing soda. The exhuast baths , that is  the colour obtained after the bath  has been used once is still strong but a more  bright yellow.
