As far as I know, this plant belongs to a temperate herbaceous species, it lives outdoors in the Netherlands. Does anybody know its Latin name?

  • Bit more info would be good - for one thing, is this a picture of a climber against a wall, or a close up of it coming out of the ground, and second, any other info, like what type of flower, when and the colour. Eventual height, maybe? – Bamboo Nov 7 '13 at 15:54
  • Does it grow a flower stock in the summer? It looks like sorrel (rumex acetosa), but I'm not certain. – michelle Nov 7 '13 at 16:06
  • @Bamboo Thanks for the reply. I didn't see its flowers, but I heard this plant has red flowers, which bloom in summer. The approximate height is 40 cm (without flowers). This picture is a close up of it coming out of the ground. Thanks. – Yuan Nov 8 '13 at 11:54
  • @michelle Thanks for the answer. Yes, I heard that this plant blooms red in summer. – Yuan Nov 8 '13 at 11:58
  • Might well be the one Michelle suggested, but its pretty hard to be sure when its at this stage. – Bamboo Nov 8 '13 at 19:58

Following up with michelle's comment, it definitely appears to be in the rumex genus. Take a look at some of the different species. I followed stormy's link to wikipedia. Here's another, although the stem is redder: Rumex obtusifolius
