Polygonaceae Fortnight- Polygonum pleibium from Kaithal:: NS May 32 : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (6).
These pics were recorded from Kaithal, I hope they also belong to Polygonum pleibium, this form has few flowers at nodes; internodes and leaves longer..
Please give your opinion..

Wow! beautiful closeups!

Thanks for this post …! Your doubts are very genuine.

Stamens are generally 5 in P. plebeiumhere I can clearly see 8 stamens, distinctly pedicellate flowers exserted from ochrea and equal size tepals. Hence I think your plant is Polygonum effusum Meisn. The plant was once considered a variety of P. plebeium (as you also guessed) but later separated.
You can find the details here:

Thanks … for liking… Thanks a lot … for these details, I will be more critical next time to confirm…
