Crimson Winter Rhubarb

This picture shows that Mr. burbank's new winter rhubarb retains the characteristic form of the stalk of the ordinary rhubarb, and its general appearance, except that the new form has a more uniform tendency to redness of color. The peculiarity of the new plant here shown is that it puts forth its stalk in the winter at a time when the ordinary rhubarb is dormant. The original plant from which this new variety was developed was imported by Mr. Burbank from New Zealand.
