Just a vague guess - Persicaria spp?
Search the forum for the keyword persicaria as there was something posted (but not sure if the leaves where as such)

That Persicaria-idea was my first impression too, and there are Persicaria bistorta in Wied Sara and Wied Ghasri, from where Il-Pine- or another member- took the pics last year. But I think, it is another species.

Upps! Than not bistorta but salicyfolia. But the small new one is not hairy, like that from the first link; or did I misunderstand something?

I think, it could be Fagopyrum esculentis, not to find in Borgs Haslams or Webers books. Request all of You, to have a look please.

"You, to have a look please. "

I thought you meant to look for you in the books and confirm if the plant is found or not in the books !! :P
