A charming shady groundcover with delicious leaves!

Redwood Sorrel is a charming groundcover with edible leaves. This is a shade-loving plant that is usually found creeping along forest floors. It flowers in spring, with small pink-striped flowers that stand out against the leaves. Its leaves look similar to clover leaves, but have an interesting property - they respond to light by folding in on themselves, which allows them to hide from direct sun.

In deeper shade, the leaves tend to grow larger and greener, and in higher light levels they can be a bit smaller with a reddish tinge. In our opinion, they are one of the tastiest leaves to eat, because of their high concentration of oxalic acid, which gives them a flavor similar to citrus. Try them in a salad!
