Species of Rumex are mostly identified on the basis of fruiting perianth, this plant being in flower, but looking at the plant size and leaves, it may be Rumex patientia var. orientalis

I think the leaves of R. acetosa are distinctly hastate to sagittate at base. Not in the above photographs.

Dear all,

Hard to say with these photographs. The habit of Rumex patientia is supposed to be more robust as per the information and photographs provided by eFlora.org. Please have a look on the photograph available on this link. (http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=107743&flora_id=800). Further, R. patientia var. orientalis Danser is treated under the synonymy of R. patientia L. var. patientia by Tropicos, not yet reported from India. A close scrutiny of the flower and fruits will help.

Waiting for further comments.

Regards,
Ritesh.
