I was given a rhubarb plant which I love because I can cut it at least 3 times in the summer after the first cut it grows back and than again after the second cut. I live in Connecticut and love this plant and would like to know just what kind it is so that I can buy another one. I was told by several people that there plant never comes back after the first cut. but mind does. Can you help me out with this. I love the fact that it just keeps coming all summer long

There are between 60 to 100 varieties of Rhubarb!
I find that I can keep my supply of Rhubarb going throughout the season by always leaving 1/3 on the plant.
