Hi Caren!  I'm in the northern half of the LP, in Missaukee County!

Rhubarb is pretty hardy.  If you're buying from a local nursery, the plants should be hardy enough for your area.  If you're ordering online, I would be sure to stick with something that's hardy to Zone 4.

Where I live(in upstate NY) this stuff grows like wild fire...I am sure it is not local or wild, but all it takes is one plant and you have a field of it, lol. So I have never had to buy it here.
