26072011-BS-001 A wild herb for id from Samalkha Panipat:   Pls ID this wild herb about 4 ft high.
Looks asteraceae member
shot from unattended area of Bel pattar Herbal Garden Samalkha Panipat
no flowers fruits seen
Shot on 28-6-11


It appears to be Conyza bonariensis 

Without flower, hmmm it is difficult, I guess. Anyway it is a species of Conyza.
Was the plant covered by stiff hairs?
Is there any difference in the leaves at the base of the stem?
Let us wait to hear from ….


I would comment only after seeing it flower. Species of Conyza are often deceptive in vegetative condition. There are similar plants here also in Kashmir. I am waiting for them to flower.


Yes I have seen it flowering it a lot in August and September in Kashmir, Jammu and along National highway 1. It is Conyza canadensis. C. bonariensis is a much shorler plant, narrow leaves and flowering earlier.
