Sharing some pictures of P. formosa shot at Ranikot, Nepal on 10 May 2014 at 6300 ft.


I am sorry to say that these images belong to Gaultheria fragrantissima Wall. (Ericaceae), not Pieris formosa (Wall.) D. Don.
Pieris formosa has lanceolate to linear-lanceolate leaves, while G. fragrantissima has ovate-elliptic lamina; Corolla always longer to G. fragrantissima; stamens also distinct in both cases


Thank you for correction! Actually it so difficult as many plants and flowers resemble!
