  1. common wood sorrel

    Common wood sorrel, scientifically known as Oxalis acetosella, is a perennial plant native to Europe and Asia. The plant typically grows in moist, shady locations and is known for its heart-shaped leaves and delicate white flowers. It's often mistaken for a clover due to its similar look. Despite its name, common wood sorrel isn't actually a true sorrel but belongs to the Oxalidaceae family. It's also known for its sour taste, and while not typically consumed in large quantities due to its high oxalic acid content, it's often used as a flavoring in certain recipes.
