Sheep's sorrel <i>(Rumex acetosella)</i>

A lover of dry, acidic soil conditions, this common perennial has unusual, arrow-shaped leaves and produces small, green flowers that turn to pinkish-red seedheads. Ensure that you dig out the entire taproot to prevent the plant from regenerating. H: 10 inches; S: 16 inches
