Nepeta leucophylla Benth from Manali, HP

These shots recorded from Chakrata area perhaps also belong to Nepeta hindostana, please suggest..


Not N. hindostana, this looks more like N. leucophylla.


 
This is another species of Nepeta found commonly in Chakrata area..
Can this be Nepeta hindostana ??


This might be Nepeta hindostana only as it is one of the few species of Nepeta found other than HP and Kashmir.


I think close to images at Nepeta ciliaris Benth. (syn: Nepeta leucophylla Benth.)

Kindly help in the identification of this member of Lamiaceae, photographed along Chakrata Deovan Road on September 17, 2011


Is this Nepeta ..??
N. hindostana. .


Perhaps you may be right.

Strangely my own plant is depicted on Flowers of India


I think close to images at Nepeta ciliaris Benth. (syn: Nepeta leucophylla Benth.)


No I think N. hindostana only


Thanks, …,  But Images at 

Please suggest proper id of this herb which is quite common in Chakrata, I think this can be Nepeta gracilis


Thanks, …
As per The Plant List & WCSP, Nepeta gracilis Salisb. is a synonym of Nepeta annua Pall.
Your plant appears different from the illustration of Nepeta annua Pall. at

Pl. check with images at Nepeta ciliaris Benth.
