Dock, Red-Veined (Rumex sanguineus) packet of 100 seeds, organic
Family: Buckwheat (Polygonacea)
Hardy to zones 3 to 11
Herbaceous perennial native to Europe, Southwest Asia and North Africa. Attractive leaf rosette for trailside decoration or for the spring salad. Leaves contain oxalic acid and overindulgence not recommended–this is a heathful and pretty garnish, not a main course. Plant prefers sun to part shade and moist, even sodden soils of average fertility. A good choice for the salad gaden, pond edge, bog, or moist woodland or shade garden. Excellent container plant. Sow seeds in the spring garden or in pots in the greenhouse. Barely cover, tamp in well, and keep evenly moist and warm for germination in 1 to 2 weeks. Very easy germ. Thin or transplant to 1 foot apart. Flowers to 2 feet tall.
