The broad dock is one of our commonest wayside "weeds", and also occurs in silage fields, on river banks, in ditches and on waste ground. It is easily recognised by its broad oval leaves which are larger than those of any other native dock except the great water dock (Rumex hydrolapathum). It is native to Northern Ireland.

All names: Rumex obtusifolius L.
