Rumex hastatulus 1809

Here’s another picture from the April 27th field trip to Bastrop State Park led by botanist Bill Carr. This time you’re looking at Rumex hastatulus, called heartwing sorrel. Do you see the tiny stylized hearts?

Probably not many people are familiar with this plant, but it grows in most of the states from New Mexico to Massachusetts, as you can confirm on the USDA’s state-clickable map.
