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

Common sorrel or garden sorrel (Rumex acetosa)
a very tasty vegetable. Germanname  Wiesen-Sauerampfer

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

I thought this to be Rumex nepalensis.

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 Please have a look on the photograph available on this link. (
    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.
Wild Weed for ID : Patni Top : 171011 : AK-1: A wild weed growing by the roadside at Patni Top on the 5th of Sept,11.
Rumex sp. A clope up of flower would decide the species R. nepalensis or R. patientia
On checking at FOI, I find it looks more like Rumex nepalensis.
Unfortunetely just one picture i have.
ID request-071011-PKA2: This was a bit common plant i had seen in the sandy soil/ desert land in Ladakh. Spotted commonly at an altitude range of approx. 10500 ft to 12000 ft.
Date/Time: 21-09-2011 / 12:00PM
Location: Magnetic Hill, Leh, Ladakh
To me this looks to be a Polygonaceae member.
Closest I can think is Rumex hastatus

Rumex from Imphal, Manipur: Any one may have the taxonomy key to identify the various species of Rumex found in Imphal, Manipur. I had collected/come across with 5 speices with little confusion. I need the key to confirm the various species. Please ...
Habitat: sloping meadow
Habit: herb, about 1 m high; flower about 2 - 3 mm across

None of your photographs show leaves of the same plant. It would help if leaves ((very distinctive in different species) show along with inflorescence.
Not able to recollect why I did not capture leaves and stem of this plant.
Next trip I will be cautious and get mores aspects of the plant.
I understand - getting to ID especially when there are species close to each other, require photos showing key aspects which are not available this time.
So, would like to rest this post. until I get more aspects of this plant during my next trip.
VoF Week : ID Please - at Valley of Flowers: Sending a photo of the flowers
Place : Valley of Flowers National Park

Looks like Rheum spiciforme, but can't be sure right now.
Rumex, most probably R, nepalense. Close up of fruiting perianth should help.
Rumex dentatus I think

Looks like a Rumex sps. (Polygonaceae).
