Hardiness Zone

Low growing and spreading by slender rhizomes. Basal leaves grow from 1"-8" tall depending on conditions, with flower stalks reaching to around 1ft tall in bloom.

Prefers well drained soil and partial to full sun. Will tolerate almost all conditions. 

Easy. Seeds can be started in the fall or spring, or anytime throughout the growing season. They can be direct seeded or started in flats and transplanted out. The plants transplant very easily.

Given good garden soil and regular waterings throughout the season, the plants will grow larger more lush leaves that are easier to harvest for culinary use. The plants can become weedy and may be grown in pots to contain them. Cutting back the flower stalks will also prevent self-seeding.

The leaves can be harvested year round for culinary use. The plants are most potent medicinally during their bloom time in summer.

Culinary Uses
The entire plant is edible. The leaves have a tangy sour lemon-like flavour that are quite delicious. They are commonly added to salads, or used as a flavouring in dishes. High in vitamins A, B, C, and E, and minerals potassium, magnesium, and calcium.

Medicinal Uses
The sour taste of the leaves enhances digestion. A tea made from the leaves are used to prevent and reduce the growth of cancerous cells. Sheep's Sorrel also has diuretic, anti-inflammatory, and antiparasitic.
