Anchusa capensis from Kashmir, commonly grown in gardens in Kashmir. Photographed from newly developed Hazuribagh garden in Srinagar on June 16, 2010. Species needs to be confirmed by our experts on garden plants like Dinesh ji and Tabish ji. I am poor at identifying garden plants.

Beautiful shots Sir. Comparing the image and description from a book on Perrennials I have this appears to be Anchusa Azurea - Bugloss, Alkanet. Also Wiki gives similar images and description. Needs your validation Sir.

regards,
Rashida.

Rashida ji
I was also tossing between these two species, and had almost decided on A. azurea till I saw calyx lobes. They are supposed to be linear with calyx divided nearly to the base and flowers 1.5-2 cm across. I don't exactly remember the flower size and it can't be made out from photographs, but the calyx lobes are triangular and shorter than tube, that matches with A. capensis and clinched the issue for me. Let us see more comments.
