A mystery flower… Kalatope id al260511a: Found this plant next to the previous query (by the roadside) I have 

sent today… did not notice it flowering..??
Location Kalatope, chamba
Altitude 2100 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild/roadside
Plant height 9 inches

I think Gamochaeta purpurea (= Gnaphalium purpureum).


Tropicos treats Gamochaeta purpurea (L.) Cabrera under the synonymy of Gamochaeta americana (Mill.) Wedd., whereas The Plant List treats them separately.


Your mystery plant is not Gamochaeta purpurea, earlier described under the names Gnaphalium purpureum or G. pennsylvanicum (some times treated distinct Gamochochaeta purpurea and G. pennsylanica as per GRIN or one species Gamochaeta purpurea as per Kew List). That plant grows commonly in Delhi and uploaded by me at FOI. It has leaves which are velvety on both sides, though much more sensely below. http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Pennsylvania%20Cudweed.htm

Your plant has leaves which are clearly green on upper surface, a feature of Gnaphalium hypoleucum (still under the same genus)

Cudweed? ABAUG2016/49 : 9 posts by 3 authors. 3 images.
This one is from yesterday. I found it at 2100m. It looks like a cudweed. Please help with the ID.
Above Dharamshala, HP
2100m

Pl. check with Amaranthus blitum ?


Thanks … This seems possible but my pictures are perhaps not sufficient to show all characteristics. From what I can see from my photos, the leaves have no stalks and inflorescence happening predominantly at the top.


This is a Gnaphalium sp. as … have pointed out..!!


Thank you … I am looking at the keys but haven’t reached a positive ID yet. I am hiking up today and will try to see the plant more closely.

Thanks, … Pl. check Images by Alok Mahendroo under Pseudognaphalium hypolecum (DC.), O. M. Hilliard & B. L. Burtt


Thank you … This is close. I will post better photos tomorrow hopefully.


Some additional images from Sunday. 3 images.

This herb was shot from Gori valley area, I hope this can be Gnaphalium hypoleucum.. though pics are inadequate to reach to any conclusion..


Looks a good match  for Pseudognaphalium hypoleucum (DC.) Hilliard & B.L.Burtt !
