Day 296: Yellow Wood-sorrel

“Yellow Wood-sorrel (Oxalis stricta) is “A low spreading plant with clover-like, sour-tasting leaves and 1 to several yellow flowers. With their clover-like leaves, the wood sorrels are easy to recognize. The sour taste of the leaves is distinctive and they may be used in salads, but sparingly, because of the oxalic acid content. The genus name comes from the Greek oxys (sour). This species is a cosmopolitan weed, perhaps originally native to North America. It is especially common as a garden weed.” (Source)
