(Buckler-leaved Sorrel, French Sorrel) Herbaceous perennial native to Europe. This is the preferred type for culinary use, lending a lemony acidity to sauces and stir-fries. Use sparingly, as the flavor is strong and pervasive, and the oxalic acid content calls for moderate use. Traditional usage: refrigerant, antiscorbutic. Plant prefers sun to part shade and does well in marginal soils of garden or wayside. Flowers to 2 feet tall. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.
