VoF Week :: DV :: 02 AUG 12 – 0329 :: conical fruited borage at Valley of Flowers: 2 AUG 12
Valley of Flowersabout 10000 ft
Habitat: along forest path on mountain slope
Habit: herb, (seems like a climber) about 1 – 1.5 m high, long and wiry flowering stem rising from axils; flower about 5 – 7 mm across; fruit about 2 – 3 mm across this fruit bears some resemblance to that posted in https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/brX6eQxilp0/ByngPqTM_BEJ, however, here the soft spines are shorter; the fruit looks conspicuously triangular even from a metre’s distance.


Perhaps Hackelia uncinata



VoF Week: Hackelia uncinata from Valley:  

Hackelia uncinata from Valley
Pls validate


Yes … You could have made it brighter in photoshop


Yes Sir After VoF Month I will process pics


 

VOF Week: Hackelia uncinata from the valley and vicinity..:  This one is I hope Hackelia uncinata… shot from various places in and around the valley…validation/correction required…


Yes … Very good photographs.


Many thanks… for sharing this plant, thanks to … for the ID.
Thus my plant at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/indiantreepix/zSmnwi-Z2N0/N7CDyU08HQ4J is certainly Hackelia uncinata.
Would the blue flex-spined fruit be a key to Hackelia uncinata ?


Would like to bring another post to notice with a bit larger fruit with similar blue spines (these too a bit longer) … https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/indiantreepix/brX6eQxilp0/ByngPqTM_BEJ
My query of blue flex-spined fruit being a key will get clarified, if both the plants posted are Hackelia uncinata.

May be Myosotis caespitosa, but not very sure.


I think this may be Hackelia uncinata.


In my opinion also this should be Hackelia uncinata….


Yes I think … and … are right


Many thanks …, … and …
Want to compare three posts with probable ID of Hackelia uncinata.
While my observations point to differences, in fact they could be just acceptable variations.

Thank you … Id does appear to be so. I will have another look at the plant tomorrow if the rain does not hinder my plans to hike in the mountains.
