Rumex flexuosus (Maori Dock) [10 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they are very tiny and need careful handling. Start them in a pot indoors in late winter to mid spring, just pressed into the surface, in a warm, bright place. The last time I grew Maori dock from seed (2022), I sowed on March 6 and the seeds started germinating on March 12. Your experience may vary.

Maori dock (Rumex flexuosus) may not appeal to most people, but if you appreciate rare plants with interesting foliage, it’s definitely worth a look. The long, narrow leaves are a sort of bronze to milk-chocolate brown: the leaf color that’s not uncommon among New Zealand natives. The plants send up slender stems in summer, to about 1 foot tall, with insignificant flowers; consider clipping them off unless you want to try to collect the seeds. Maori dock shows off best in a pot by itself, I think, and that way, you can easily bring it indoors for the winter if it’s not hardy in your area. You can grow it as an annual, too, but as it’s so unusual and the seeds are so hard to find, it’s worth trying to keep the plants from year to year. Full sun to light shade; moist soil. Perennial in Zones 6 or 7 to 10.

Collected in late July 2022. At least 10 seeds. Quantity is limited: these seeds are very small and difficult to clean.
