Ligularia amplexicaulis ABAUG2017/23 : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (16)
I had photographed this first on my Indrahar trek when the flowers were not yet fully released from their sheath. When I managed to resist the plant after a week I was rewarded with bright yellow flower-globes. I think this is Ligularia amplexicaulis. Please advise if I have made a mistake in identification.
All the plants were growing next to/among Rhododendron campanulatum trees.

These have been identified based on the pics available in efi to be occurring in that area.
