Kindly help in ID of this Salvia species.
The pic has been taken from WURDWAN (J & K).
From flowers, the guess could be Salvia nubicola, but the leaves are completely unique and different.
Sorry for bad quality of pics.

efi page on Salvia nubicola  

Teucrium royleanum as per another thread.

Yes, Teucrium royleanum

Can’t this be Nepeta govaniana instead..?

It is Nepeta govaviana

Thanks … Yes it is N. govaniana

This was growing next to a clump of Rhododendron campanulatum trees. I think this is Nepeta govaniana. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Nice pics, and I agree with your id too…!!

I think it will be Nepeta govaniana (Wall. ex Benth.) Benth. as per images herein.



Saw these in along the Ghangaria-VOF trail, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
These have been identified based on the pics available in efi to be occuring in that area.
Kindly validate.

To me also appear close to images at Nepeta govaniana
