Synotis kunthiana (Wall. ex DC.) C.Jaffrey & Y.L.Chen [=Senecio kunthianus Wall. ex DC.] is a common woody based perennial in subalpine and alpine zones of Uttarakhand.
It is a late bloomer flowering in August and onward up to October.
Beautiful patches of it can be seen along route to Valley of Flowers above Ghangaria. 


This one was again shot from the valley of flowers, Uttrakhand.. identified as Senecio kunthianus… hope the id is right..

It IS S.kunthianus now known as Synotis kunthiana (Wall. ex DC.) C.Jaffrey & Y.L.Chen

Saw this at Hemkund (4600 mts), Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
