Came across this variety on the Gurney's website while trying to find information on the Mammoth variety being sort out in another thread here. Seems to have a degree of heat tolerance that may allow some in warmer areas to grow rhubarb. If you can get a division I would suggest that over a smaller potted plant.

The seed for this variety probably came from French Harvest, a small rhubarb farm with a breeding/seed collection program. They are located at Bittern, on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula located between Western Port and Port Phillip Bay. According to their website, family farming of rhubarb is a multi-generational history and they have a good sized selection of seed. If people are interested, arrangements could be made to get seed over.
