Petunia Rhubarb is one of the main characters from VeggieTales.
In her first appearance, she was the princess of Rhubarb. Prior to the Great Pie War, she was the wife of Ryan, who is son of Gildersleeve the Invincible, ruler of Scone.
After the war and their husbands death, her mother-in-law Nona was the enemy of Rhubarb. But because she was compassion towards her, Petunia left her kingdom and moved with Nona outside of Scone where Duke's apple orchard is.
After meeting with Duke, Nona told Petunia to ask him if he can battle against Otis, who refused to help Nona and Petunia after the war. He also challenged him should have both halves of the duck.
After Duke won the battle, he and Petunia decided to get married so he can always take care of her forever.
Before the character redesign (1993-2014), she is a tall, green rhubarb with red hair held in a braid with a yellow band, pearl earrings, baby pink eyeshadow, red painted lips, yellow band on the waist, and a purple/baby pink dress with several golden touches.
Like the rest of the veggies, she can hold items without hands.
In the character redesign (2014-present), she has loose red hair, red painted lips, a fucshia collared blouse with a mustard yellow flower on the chest, an orange band on her waist, and a fucshia maxi skirt.
