Unid plant from Kashmir: TQKashmir01 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (4)
An unidentified wildflower, found in Doodhpathri, Kashmir, in early June at around 2,730 m elevation.

Superficially it looks like the alien plant Leucanthemum vulgare – Oxeye Daisy, however, look at the narrow leaves which are not toothed.

Identification please!


I think it is Aster molliusculus
