Hi,

I am new to the group and would like to use the members' knowledge to help me in identifying some of the pictures of flowers I took on my recent trip to Sikkim. I have tried to use the website www.flowersofindia.net to identify the flowers by searching them by their colours but I have made little headway even after a week of scouring its very helpful index. I would be happy if the people here can help me identify some of the flowers in the pics I'll be posting here.

I have attached some of them, there will be more to follow.

Dear Amar ji
You would surely get help here, but please follow posting guidelines: One species (type of plant) one mail. Post photographs of different plants in different mails.
Since you are new to the group I am giving you the names of plants

First...............Californian poppy, Eschscholzia californica

Second.........Dandlion, Taraxacum officinale.

Third...............Add photograph with leaves

Fourth.............Amaryllis lily, Hippeastrum sp

Hi Mr. Singh,

I am extremely sorry for not following the posting guidelines. I'll
definitely stick to them with my further posts.

Thanks a lot for the IDs on those flowers.

Amar

Sir, 
the fourth picture is Azlaea (Rhododendron sp.) I think.

Dear Mr Karthick: it could be Azalea... one would need to see leaves
for azalea and the stalk if its the Amaryllis lily...
so Amar can you provide pics for these?

Hi Ushadi,

I am afraid I cannot provide the pics of the stalk or the leaves for
this flower. They are not visible in the pic I took.
