Rumex Acetosa
Very hardy perennial green, with a distinctly tart flavor, almost lemony.  Excellent in small amounts to add pep to a raw salad, can also be cooked like braising green to add sour elements to a dish.

This is one of the first greens you can enjoy in the early spring, it has great nutritional properties and is effortless to care for.  

It will ‘bolt’ when the temperatures get high, so either harvest often or plan to cut it back to reduce woody, tougher leaves that happen mid summer.  This is certainly a spring and fall player.

Size:
About 1’ high, up to 3’ tall with flowers.

Site Preference:
Seems tolerant of a very wide number of soils and sites.

Hardiness:
Zone 2
