Rumex acetosella is a dioecious perennial herb originating in Eurasia; it grows wild on roadsides or in wastelands in various districts; 20-50cm in height, more diminutive than another species, Rumex acetosa, it propagates by extending its thin rhizomes sideways. Leaves measure 2-7cm in height, in the shape of a hastate, bases project in a pair of ears way. With this species, the female flower's inner perianth lobes stay the same size even after the flower, unlike Rumex acetosa. Bloom time: May-August.
