Flowers from Pangi id al031011: I know a lot of my observations will remain unidentified.. due to lack
of details and inexperience in collection of data on my part… but I love sharing with people on this forum due to your love for flowers… Here are some more for the day…
Location Pangi Valley, Himachal
Altitude 3000 mts

Habit herb
Habitat wild
Plant height 20 inches

Primulaceae


Looks like Androsace, but leaves not clear


I thought of Primula…

It looks me Prumula involucrata.


Thanks … I think you’re right…


Thanks … for resolving identity of this plant.


This has been correctly identified by the … but there has been a nomenclatural change it is now Primula munroi.
Commonly known as the ‘White Marsh Primula’ this species is typically white but is often much more colourful on the Rohtang Pass. In the mid-1980s there was a low wet cliff at about 3600m fed by a large seepage area, where I was able to stop the vehicle which transported members of the botanical tours I led en route to Miyah Nullah, Lahoul, to photograph what I knew as Primula involucrata then. Sadly, this area has been bulldozed away (don’t think it has helped the drainage much) but it remains a widespread plant.
Flowers of Himalaya record it from Pakistan to SW China @ 3000-4500m, streamsides & marshes, common.
I last saw it in flower in Mustang district of Nepal above Muktinath a few years ago.
