The common sorrel is a plant typically seen growing in grassland habitats. Sorrel is considered as a salad vegetable because of its edible green leaves. The flowers of sorrel appear reddish green before turning purple when in full bloom, usually during early summer. While sorrel is known to have its roots grow deep in the ground, it is also a good container plant with an upside: if it is in a pot, you can move it to a cooler location or away from direct sunlight during warm weather.
