Description: A perennial herb, Sheep's Sorrel is smaller than its close relative Common sorrel. It is common across the UK and Ireland in heathland, dry grassland, rocky outcrops and sand dunes, creating areas of red where it forms patches. It is an important food plant for the caterpillars of the small copper butterfly.
Flowering time: May to August
Colour: Reddish with green
Management: Sheep's Sorrel plants do best in lightly grazed grassland on moist, acidic soils. They can tolerate full sun or partial shade.
Kindly be aware that as autumn approaches, our wildflower plants might be delivered in a state where they appear to have passed their peak. We strive to inform you about this at the time of your order. It is common for native plants to exhibit leaf blotches or have dead/brown leaves during specific times of the year; this is entirely natural. We assure you that we meticulously inspect the root condition, ensuring their robust health. Once planted, the plug plant will respond accordingly.
Please understand that owing to the perishable nature of our plug plants, the usual right to cancel does not apply.
