Rumex sanguineus 

USDA Zones 6-8


This herb is from the family Polygonaceae. 


Sorrel leaves are similar to citrus, nice & tangy. They may be harvested as a baby leaf & used in salads, or as a mature, large leaf & cooked like spinach. Sorrel pairs well with fish, meat, or egg dishes, & as an ingredient in soups & gratin. Leaves may be added to raw dishes. 


Sorrel is easy to grow. With little maintenance, it produces masses of pale green leaves with red veins. It’s a hardy perennial, so it can be cut & come again. Leaves may even be harvested in mid winter! 


Grow sorrel in a sunny or partially shady, fertile area with moisture retentive soil.
