Southern CA can get very hot and I read that rhubarb does best in colder climates,  is there any hope for successfully growing rhubarb in a Meditteranian climate?

That root crop needs very cold winters to survive...........winters below 40 and summers below is futile to try and grow it in your area.  M;uch cheaper to buy it. Sorry to let you know this.
