Sorrel Bloody Dock

6371-Bloody Dock. Rumex sanguineus

Perennial (hardy in zones 4-9)

(Red-veined dock; Bloodwort) A British native with rosettes of striking light green leaves marked with bright maroon-coloured veins. Very interesting new salad green! Young leaves can be used like spinach, fresh in salads or blanched a few seconds in boiling water, adding tangy-citrus flavour. Plant in full sun to partial shade in average to moist soil. Will grow continuously from spring until fall and benefits from consistent pruning. Self seeds, so it is important to cut the flower heads to prevent it from getting out of hand. Height 3 feet.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
