Bistorta emodi in FOI:
I am having doubts about your images of Bistorta emodi in FOI, as per images and details at Bistorta emodi (Meisn.) H. Hara
Pl. check.

My picture is of poor quality and the flowers have not yet bloomed. So can’t really tell if it is really this species. I guess it will be misleading to keep it on the site. I will remove it for now.
