Dear Friends,

Came across this small herb en-route Hemkund Sahib. Looks like some Valeriana sp.?  I had just gone thru the Dinesh's post where in Gurcharn Singh ji has indicated that this plant could be Valeriana jatamansii. 

Regards
Prashant

Thank you very much Prashant for getting us to see the basal leaves.
Referring to Gurcharan ji's comment in my post at https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/23Ygi-S8t5s/2tUFia2UQoAJ ... basal leaves are simple cordate in case of Valeriana jatamansii ... not sure the leaves are cordate here; they seem to have winged stalk.
Let us wait for Gurcharan ji's comment.

Regards.
Dinesh

Yes Dinesh ji
I had my doubts even before I read your mail. Pink flowers were already worrying me. I would now go with V. himalayana, till better alternative emerges.

Thanks a lot Gurcharan Singh ji. It does look like Valeriana himalayana. Have  a look at this link:
