How does one distinguish wood sorrel from common clover? I have read wood sorrel has heart shaped leaves, but as far as I know so do shamrocks. I have also read they the leaves fold downward in the middle -- is this only at night time? Does anyone know of any other distinguishing characteristics?

 

Thanks so much!

Excellent. Thanks Pete. This is probably in the incorrect forum and should be moved to Food And Cooking huh?

There are numerous species of what we call wood sorrel.  But comparing them to clover is easy, for clover lacks the heart shape, and the sorrel is acidic (clover isn't).
