What's going on with my rhubarb?

This plant is over 50' from one that just does great year after year. I water them the same and try to do everything equally. No matter, when several weeks in to looking really great, one or two leaves start turning red, and keep going till they are dead. others follow? WHY

    Could be the soil pH level.

    It is a fungus. Discard the plant it is not treatable

    could be several things. One the soil isn't rich enough. Two it could be a fungus. Three just to big of a plant. If you really want to keep it take a few samples and pictures to a local nursery. A long with a sample of the soil.

    I agree with Janet. It sounds like a fungus. Pull it out and get the roots out too. Sorry. It happens to all of us.

    Agreed - likely a fungus :( You can start over, though!

      I meant that you could start over by replanting in another place.... and I agree with you, it doesn't really sound like too much water!
