This sorrel was growing among the tall spikes of Nepal Dock and I almost didn’t pay attention. But the leaves are distinctive and I did manage a couple of photos. I think this is Oxyria digyna. Please advise.

Wild flowers for ID. Photo taken after crossing Lipulekh pass – Indian side. Height around 14000 feet. Rocky terrain. Aug 27, 2016.


Oxyria digyna (Polygonaceae).


… is correct that this is Oxyria digyna (unless of course in the future this ‘species’ is subdivided into various taxa).
‘Flowers of Himalaya’  give its distribution from Pakistan to SW China and N.Temperate zone common on open slopes & grazing grounds.
Stewart found it to be very common in wet soils at high altitudes and useful as greens from 2700-5500m.
‘Flora of Lahaul-Spiti’ says common along water source, in meadows and glacial moraine.
We even have it in the British mountains, where it is known as ‘Mountain Sorrel’ also in damp rocky places esp. beside streams.

Kindly identify this herb with sour edible leaves photographed along the path to Manimahesh at the height of about 2300 metres, in June 2017.
The herb was growing also at higher elevations, tho at lower elevations the flowers were more developed.

Oxyria digyna (Polygonaceae). Must be sour in taste.
See in eFI.


Yes it was sour. Thank you …
