Wild Flowers of Central Australia
Rosy Dock
Rumex vesicarius

Also listed under the scientific name of Acetosa vesicaria, this plan is also commonly known as Ruby dock, Native Hops and Wild Hops.

Rosy Dock is a fleshy-leafed annual, that is often seen after good winter rains, spread throughout the outback. It has been seen on sandy, stony and gravelly soil. It is also found growing along roadsides, disturbed areas, wasteland, gardens, creekbeds, ridges and rocky outcrops.

The flower is in long racemes, with the fruit being bright pink to red, with a inflated, vein-like appearance.
 

It is thought that the plant was introduced into Australia with camels, either as feed or accidentally as seed in saddles or packing. The plant is a native to northern Africa and western Asia, but is now classified as a weed in all mainland states of Australia.
