Potentilla eriocarpa (Rosaceae) from Uttarakhand: Sep. 2014_DSR_29 : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1). Potentilla eriocarpa (Rosaceae) photographed near Kailuvinayak (Chamoli) in Uttarakhand. 4100m altitude.


This looks correct – COMPLETELY different to the plants photographed in Spiti which are posted above.

Flowers of the Himalaya says rocks @ 3000-5000m from Pakistan to SW China.
Stewart describes it as another fine perennial on cliffs at high levels in Kashmir @ 3300-4200m.

Must be in rock crevices. It prefers this habitat.

Yes it is P. eriocarpa. Beautiful autumn colours in leaves.
Thanks for showing this colourful picture.


very nice colors and en face of the flower, precisely designed , perfect and you found it in its prime.


I am in agreement with … that this is Potentilla eriocarpa, so cannot understand how the Potentilla from Spiti was so
mistakenly named as this species.

I shall be postings more up-to-date digital images of close-ups
of Potentilla eriocarpa in future postings by came across this
slide from late 1980s I think, which I have scanned in.
Not terribly good quality with yellow flowers not exposed well but
gives good impression of typical habitat – in this case the rocks
were dripping with water.
