Dear Gurcharan ji,
Could you take a picture of the basal leaves of this plant?

Tabish ji
I hope you have the other species E. coeruleum (now correctly known as E. planum L.;( E. biebersteinianum Nevski in Fl. Himal)) in mind. That is much different looking plant, relatively unbranched, and is less common, mostly found in orchards, the basal leaves are entire. E. billardieri is mostly found in disturbed well lighted areas.
