Creeping wood sorrel (Oxalis corniculata)
This plant is cosmopolitan in its distribution and considered a weed in gardens, crop fields and lawns. Its leaves, which can be green or purple in colour, are edible and have a tangy taste of lemons. A drink can be made by infusing the leaves in hot water for about 10 minutes, sweetening and then chilling. Wood sorrel is rich in vitamin C. The plant is also known as procumbent yellow sorrel or sleeping beauty.
