Hindi or sanskrit name of Edelweiss:

I am a scholar and I am looking for information on the Himalayan Edelweiss flower (Leontopodium himalayanum).
1. Do you know what this plant is called in hindi or sanskrit in Bharat?
2. Do you know any literature on this plant in any of ayurveda books?

You may google your query. Perhaps, you may get the answer!

I have tried on Google, every database possible but could not find any mention.

I also tried but could not find the requisite details as desired.
