Acetosa P. Miller. Subfamily: Polygonoideae. Sorrel, Sour Dock.

Key to Acetosa

A genus of about 50 species, annual and perennial herbs, primarily of the temperate Northern Hemisphere. Usually included in Rumex, there seems plenty of reason based on phylogeny, karyotype, morphology, and evolutionary processes to recognize Acetosa at genus rank.
