This Pogostemon species was seen in Sandur, Karnataka on a rocky hill top plateau, 950 m asl, october 2021. There were 3 - 4 clumps in the immediate vicinity and I did not encounter these plants anywhere else. The plants are quite striking!
Leaves were silky sericeous, opposite or whorled, and inflorecences in terminal spikes.
Am I correct in identifying it as Pogostemon myosuroides or is it something else?
Please help in clarifying the identity.
