Observations of the growth and development of sorrel plants (Rumex
acetosa L.) cv. Lyon were conducted. In the first year of study only
15% plants yielded seedstalks. In the second and third years all plants
bloomed, which permitted the determination that the proportion of male and
female specimens was 1:2 in the whole population. Earlier blooming was
observed with seedstalks of male plants than with those of female ones.
Seedstalks of male plants were smaller and also clustered fewer than half
the flowers on female plants.
