Garnet Prince is a medium sized plant with very dark petioles.

Seems like a forgotten (and fairly forgettable) hybrid. I note that one comment compares it favorably to Regal Rhubarb. Do you see much difference?

I don't have Regal Rhubarb to compare. From the Hosta Library photos I don't see much difference. The Library photos seem to show darker petioles on RR BUT my plants rarely look as dark as the Library photos.
