Bloody dock looks like an unremarkable plant that figured out how to doll itself up in order to earn a place in the garden. It surely is a fun foliage plant for use in the garden, containers and salads. Rippled green leaves have distinctive, attractive, reddish purple venation. Panicles of tiny, star-shaped flowers in late summer. Can reseed lightly. Related to sorrel, the leaves are edible, if rubbery and not with much flavour. However, use a small amount to add incredible contrast to mixed salads.
