Without flower, hmmm it is difficult, I guess. Anyway it is a species
of Conyza.
Was the plant covered by stiff hairs?
Is there any difference in the leaves at the base of the stem?
Let us wait to hear from Gurcharan sir.


Regards,
Giby

I would comment only after seeing it flower. Species of Conyza are often deceptive in vegetative condition. There are similar plants here also in Kashmir. I am waiting for them to flower.

Yes I have seen it flowering it a lot in August and September in Kashmir, Jammu and along National highway 1. It is Conyza canadensis. C. bonariensis is a much shorler plant, narrow leaves and flowering earlier.
