Though I was not fortunate enough to see the fresh flowers of this small tree.. still wanted to share the shots recorded from Sikkim this year..
Please suggest (if possible) whether they belong to Gnidia glauca or otherwise…


efi page on Gnidia glauca


Could they not be dried flowers of Thymeleaceae Edgeworthia gardneri?
We call it Argeli in Nepali and a local paper is made from it.
Hope this helps?
