Dock, dockweed, dock weed. Common weed but has its own beauty. These photos were taken on a roadside verge near Roxburgh, Central Otago, New Zealand on 23 January 2021. The first two photos show the nursery web of a nursery web spider. The last photo is another dock plant altogether.

  2. There’s an introduced variety here that looks like this one: Rumex crispus. Apparently it thrives throughout the US, so the weeds in Steve’s garden may be the same as the roadside plants that I see here in Texas.
