Rumex acetosa / Suiba スイバ

 
Rumex acetosa is a dioecious perennial herb of 0.3-1m in height, commonly seen in grasslands, paths between paddies, or roadsides. Leaves are approximately 10cm in length, in a long-oblong-like lanceolate shape, with the bases generally sagittate; the grounds of the upper parts embrace stems. Stem's tips emerge racemes conically and set many small, about 3mm across flowers in them. The female flower's inner perianth lobes become significant in a wing way, embracing achenes. Bloom time: May-August.
