Note: this study recovered a monophyletic genus, with five clades of unresolved affinities; clade "B" was distant from clade "A" that included those species probably involved in the origin of rhubarb; Rheum spiciforme (and also its synonyms R. przewalskyi, R. rhizostachyum, and R. rhomboideum) was included in clade "B"
