Purple Butterfly Sorrel leaves have a velvety texture, grow in small clumps, and are sensitive to light, opening during the day and folding in at night. The plant can reach 15-30 centimeters in height and 50 centimeters in width and bears soft-pink or white, five-petaled flowers that also close at night. The leaves are crisp and acidic with a lemony taste and a slightly sweet undertone. The leaves are used as a garnish for salads. Even if not eaten, their beautiful leaves and petite flowers make a unique decoration to any home or garden. Purple Butterfly sorrel contains oxalic acid, which is a naturally occurring organic acid and defense mechanism that makes it taste sour and discourages animals from eating the plant. The plant is best used in small amounts and should not be consumed in large amounts as it can lead to nutritional deficiencies.
