    Broadleaf Dock (Rumex obtusifolius)

    Bad news is that they have deep taproots but good news is that these roots are reported to bring up calcium, potassium, phosphorus and iron, and help the soil structure. I can't vouch for that.

    Try growing Rumex flexuosus for a new appreciation of this genus!
