Lamiaceae Herb For Id from Dalhousie 2011:
This herb was shot in November 2011, from Dalhousie.
A herb with dentate, hairy leaves, flowers in axillary whorls, pinkish white...
Later similar plant was shot from Chakrata region. Hope to get the identification……

Clearly Lamium album
Black anther emerging under the hood are very pretty and distinctive.


.


This herb was recorded from Dalhousie, ..this time flowers completely white, unlikely of my upload from Chakrata..
Lamium album.. please validate.

Nice photographs. While i was sorting the pics from Lamiaceae, i noticed that the plant posted by U is indicated as Leucas lanata in the book “Valley of Flowers by K.R. keshava Murthy”. … has already included this in the Errata page of FOI.

This graceful delicate herb is not much frequent and these shots are being shared from Chakrata…
Lamium album
Please do correct me if otherwise..

Never heard about pink colour in L. album. Could be L. purpureum (I don’t know whether it is reported from the area).
http://www.discoverlife.org/20/q?search=Lamium+purpureum

I don’t think it (Lamium purpureumhas been reported from India. 


Three Lamium are known in Uttarakhand. L.album, L.amplexicaule & L.rhomboideum.


If we can follow FoP or FoNA for the id of blue coloured flowers of Anagallis arvensis L. we can depend on FoP flower colour of this species also. Of-course if only colour of flower is the only concern!
The following lit may help- book link 

Yes it is Lamium album. i also collected it from my dist. i was also confused about it identity. when consulted dd herberium Dehra Dun then cleared that Lamium album has also purple flowers too.


Thanks … for sharing excellent publication link.
