High Altitude Artemisia- Artemisia macrocephala:  I had seen this sp. of Artemisia in the wetland – grassy field near lake Tso moriri in Ladakh region.

The Tso Moriri lake in Ladakh is another High Altitude lake (Altitude approx: 15075ft) and was declared as a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention in 2003.  Enclosing few photographs to have a feel of the habitat.
As per eflora of China— this Artemisia sp is the  species of high altitudes, commonly growing in sandy and grassy slopes near streams and glaciers between 3400 and 5500 m from sea level;
Distribution: China, Mongolia, Tibet, Russia (Siberia, Tian Shan, Pamir Alai), India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
This herb  was around 30 cm in ht with several stems from the base with whitish grey hairs.
Bot. name: Artemisia macrocephala
Family: Asteraceae

This Tso moreri lake is soo beautiful…serene.


Wonderful blues… no pollution thats visible…

is it high altitude that makes the leaves of this artimisia look kind- a “succulent-ish”, short squat and somewhat thick?
do you have a close up view of just the leaf?

Can anybody assist with the identification of  plant near the bird. Picture is from Ladakh. Not clicked by me.


Thanks, … Difficult to see any details.
Can you ask her/ him to crop the picture of the plant & then post ?


Please check Grangea maderaspatna of Asteraceae


Thank you …, I checked but then leaves in the image appears to be succulent and entire… I will try to get some more images if available


Suggested plant Grangea maderaspatana is a tropical species not found in Ladakh
It could be Artemisia macrocephala


Artemisia macrocephala Jacquem. ex Besser !
