The first two pictures may be of Glinus lotoides (Molluginaceae).

The third picture looks like a Heliotropium sp., probably H. supinum.


The first 2 are Glinus lotoides. I’m not sure about the third,

¿ Glinus lotoides ?

Seems matching …

Yes, it should be Glinus lotoides, nice habitat pics too…

Perhaps you also could not find the open flowers like me..

Thank you very much … for validating the ID, and for appreciation.

Yes, …, I could see no fully opened flowers. I think about 5 – 10 minutes later I would have seen them.
The first picture, at right bottom has one flower slightly opened. All parts of this plant seems to have only one colour, only differing in shades !!!

I assume this plant is found in Nepal. Any local name(s) ?


POWO shows its distribution in Nepal but did not find it anywhere listed. Mollugo


OK, thanks …, Glinus lotoides is not listed in Nepal’s Annotated Checklist.
