In Easy to Remember (2000), William Zinsser counts rhubarb among his list of “magical words” with powerful connotations. (Rhubarb is a red-stemmed medicinal plant.)

Rhubarb is the name of a magician’s rabbit in Prophet Annie by Ellen Recknor (2000).

Rhubarb must be a magical word - this morning I was admiring rhubarb in some photos I took. I love the way its leaves curl.
It is beautiful, medicinal, and delicious!
