Native Plant Trust: Go Botany Discover thousands of New England plants

Genus: Rumex — dock

You will need to have all the parts of a plant and to select plants with mature fruit to identify most species of Rumex that occur in our area. For some species in the Full Key you will need to measure the length of the pedicel. The pedicels are jointed; include both the portions above and below the joint in the measurement. Reference: Rechinger (1937).
