Garden sorrel has grown wild for centuries throughout Europe, Asia, Scandinavia and North America. It has a broad base spear-shaped leaf that resembles spinach.

It seems there is always room for just one more plant in the herb garden, and while poking through catalogs I was reminded of an old favorite — sorrel. Sorrel is a hardy perennial that appears early in spring and lasts to fall. It has tangy, lemon-flavored leaves that add zest to a salad or any dish, for that matter. These leaves — raw or cooked — can bring a fresh lemon flavor to a meal.
