The plant looks different from Nardostachys jatamansii on two counts

The leaves are supposed to be broader, shining and latitudinally veined. Here we can see a clear midrib
The flowers typically are reddish in colour.

Being a taxonomist, when I get a plant in my hand, my first habit is
to check the original protologue or illustration or herbarium. Rest of
the floras are secondary for me as they always should be.
The illustration on the protologue says it all.
This should be
Nardostachys jatamansi DC.Coll. Mém. vii. 4. t. 2 (1830).
The illustration is "t. 2" from the above reference.
I do see similar leaf with single mid rib in the illustration and it
does seem shining to me....
But I am open for discussions, I may be wrong....but my intention was
to encourage usage of original literatures.

Its recent name is Nardostachys grandiflora Syn: N.jatamansi. To remove confusion  another member of this family,i.e. Valeriana wallichii is now named as V jatamansi.
