Rumex scutatus


Buckler-leaved sorrel, French sorrel, Garden sorrel. Probably the nicest edible member of the Rumex family, this well known sorrel forms a fair ground cover, growing 30 cm (1 ft) high and self-seeding itself around the garden. It is unfussy about soil or situation, through it prefers sun or part shade; hardy to -20°C. The leaves, as well as being edible raw or cooked with a delicious lemony flavour and nice texture, are used medicinally; they should be used sparingly.

Out of stock (A selection of warm-weather plants will be available June 2022. All other trees and perennials will be orderable from late July, for autumn/winter delivery)
