Seen this plant with green colour flowers en-route Hemkund sahib.
Date/Time: 09-08-2012 / 12:15PM
Habitat: Wild


Could this plant be “Aconogonum rumicifolium“. I took the hint about the ID from one of the post from …
The description as given in the book “Flowers of Himalaya (Oleg Polunin & Adam Stainton)” tallies well with this plant. Kindly have a re look at the pics for ID…


Yes …, I was about to suggest that but got fooled with larger looking flowers, perhaps a macro affect.

Polygonum sp. from Paddar valley J&K. 02: Request for identification

Can this plant be Polygonum tortuosum
Family: Polygonaceae
Location: Paddar valley J&K.
Date: 2nd August 2011
Altitude: 3000 meters asl

I think not
To me it appears younger inflorescence of Persicaria wallichii
Perhaps … can give better conclusion.


As per your comment on another thread (O3) the link by you does give some resemblance to your plant
but if we look at following illustration for Aconogonon tortuosum var. tibetanum
and following of Polygonum tataricum (considered as synonym of Aconogonon var. tortuosum in eFl of Pakistan)
your plant looks much different.
Perhaps … can throw light on all three uploads by you (01, 02, 03).

It look me Aconogonum rumucifolium


Yes, I think … is right. This looks like Aconogonon rumicifolium (Royle ex Bab.) H. Hara to me too.
Family: Polygonaceae
Flowers of India link for comparison

Aconogonum rumicifolium Hara

Flowers in this are dark coloured,where as these usually are light coloured or at the most pale pink ? May be due to climatic & edaphic factors.


Could you please upload some more photographs of this plant …?
