I found this plant growing in Darjeeling. It is almost like a weed on the borders of tea gardens. Few of the estate managers told me that they use this plant along with other herbs to make a concoction and
spray on tea bushes to control some pests.
The plant is almost a meter height
Dark pink stem
No flowers in this season
The vegetative stage indicate it as Eupatorium sp.?
It may be a Scleria species of Cyperaceae.
Any picture at flowering stage?
I think it represents Carex sp.
Yes it is a species of genus Carex (Cyperaceae).
is this natural or planted… reason I am asking is there seems to be cobble stones beyond the c shaped semicircular retaining slab… manmade?
