I just was adding some pictures and comments for this plant, and noticed how vivid of a red yours is. When I opened it larger it looks more like one of the swiss chards to me, based on the leaf shape and the way the red continues into the leaf veins. I know there are some swiss chard varieties called 'rhubarb', and thought that might be what this one is.

My eyes aren't the greatest but to me it looks a lot like Swiss Chard (Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla 'Rhubarb Chard')

@molanic, @plantladylin: Morgan and Lin, you probably are correct. I will try to get it categorized correctly. Thank you for noticing and bringing it to my attention.
