You could check out whether you like the plots generated in the "party" 
package better. See example("ctree", package = "party").

If you like the plots but don't want to use ctree() instead of rpart():
Then you could install the "partykit" package from R-Forge and then do
plot(as.party(...)) for your "rpart" object.
