Dock, Yellow (Rumex crispus) potted plant, organic


Family: Buckwheat (Polygonaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 9

Herbaceous perennial native to Europe and North Asia.  Members of this family (Buckwheat=Polygonaceae) are processed of an opalescent stipule that sheathes the base of leaf stem.  One of the pictures in the gallery demonstrates this phenomena.  The presence of the ochrea is a good field identification for Polygonacea.   Back to yellow dock.  Traditional usage (TWM): laxative, iron supplement.  Deeply taprooted plant prefers moist ground, partial shade to sun.  Here’s a plant that will grow readily in clay!  Flowers rusty-red to 3 feet.  Space plants 2 feet apart.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
