Prashant ji
You may be having two different species here
One (1312, 1315) with few spreading hairs on stem, longer corolla tube, lighter flower colour...........................Stachys sericea
One (1328, 1229) with densely woolly stems, broader corolla, darker flower colour and shorter corolla tube......S. floccosa  

Watch my S. sericea from Manali and S. floccosa from Kadhmir, uploading soon.

Thanks Gurcharan Singh ji. I had never seen these pics so closely.
Thanks for pointing out the differences.
