Description

For more information on the habitat, vegetation, and weather of the Riparian Zone this specimen came from, please see the journal entry specific to that location from May 12, 2012. This sheep sorrel was found growing in the same little island of greenery that I found the sweet vernal grass in. The sheep sorrel was growing in a small patch and had small, arrow shaped leaves with smaller maroon flowers. This particular specimen had flowered at this point. This plant has edible leaves that taste like lemon. It is related to spinach, but should not be eaten in large amounts. It is considered an extremely noxious weed and is very hard to control.
