Rumex persicarioides is a species of flowering plant in the family Polygonaceae, native to western Canada and the US (British Columbia, Oregon and California) and eastern Canada and the northeastern US (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York State).[1]


Rumex persicarioides was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753.[2] It has been treated as a variety of Rumex maritimus (as R. maritimus var. persicarioides), but is accepted as a full species by other sources, including the online Flora of North America.[1][3]
