Rumex sanguineus (Red-Veined Sorrel) Herb in 9cm Pot

Red-Veined Sorrel also known as Bloody Dock, is a unique foliage perennial that makes an unusual accent plant in the border. Plants form a low clump of large spinach-like leaves, dark green with a striking deep-red pattern of veins. Spikes of greenish flowers appear in early summer. Plants benefit from cutting hard back after flowering to rejuvenate the foliage and prevent the plant becoming leggy. Also useful in mixed containers or window boxes. Growing to 60cm tall it is clump forming and not invasive these clumps can be divided in early spring,  it will readily self seed if allowed! 

Red-Veined Sorrel likes damp soil and does especially well in boggy areas. It’s very happy in gardens with heavy clay soil.

Herb Usage

The leaves of the Red-veined Sorrel can be used raw in salads where it is a bit like a bitter spinach and as a vegetable in soups, but the red pigments do bleed a bit when the leaves are bruised or cut.
