Searching Genus for RUMEX
More than 100 perennial species widely distributed in the temperate world, but only a few merit inclusion in the ornamental garden.
Great Water Dock
Found on shorelines of lakes and streams, in marshes and wet meadows of northeastern North America. Large, lance-shaped leaves are up to 60cm long. The much-branched flower stems develop through the summer and commonly attain heights of 1 to 2.5m. Small greenish flowers turn pink then reddish-brown. Very decorative, sharply triangular seed pods develop in fall. Leaves often turn a brilliant red in autumn and dried seed stalks frequently remain erect well into winter. Provides a dramatic vertical accent for pond margins or other moist to wet soil. Will self-sow, but is not invasive. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Cold treatment required.

RUMEX sanguineus var. sanguineus
The species is native to Europe and not terribly showy. This variety, however, with strong maroon-red veining on the green leaves is a striking foliage accent for the semi-shaded garden. Cut the insignificant flower stalks when they appear.
Easy, warm germinator.
