This is one of our favorite rock garden plants. Bloody dock has narrow, 8-10" long green leaves with brilliant red veining. The leaves radiate out from the center making an absolutely gorgeous clump...sort of like a wild-looking hosta. In cooler climates, you may get seed, which will come true...a real show-stopper! In warm climates, there won't be much sexual activity, so sit on your bloody dock and drink a Bloody Mary!
