ID Required for Leh Flowers 1 : 9 posts by 5 authors. 2 correct images as above.
This plant was photographed by a friend of mine hence i cant give any information about it. My guess is that this plant is Ephedra however i may be wrong

Yes doc, this is Ephedra, forgot the species name :(.

I think Ephedra viridis

Ephedra gerardiana

Images 1a and 1b are of Tanacetum gracile. Images 2a and 2b are of Ephedra gerardiana.

Sorry for not noticing 1a and 1b earlier. I think they belong to A. artemisioides Sch.-Bip which has larger heads than T. gracile.

Sorry I meant Tanacetum artemisioides Sch.-Bip

Thank you all for giving the correct ids. There are some more that i will be posting that require identification. They all belong to Leh- Laddakh region but since they are not my pics but have been taken by a friend i wont be able to give any information about them. Sorry for that
