Saussurea gnaphalodes has a wooly leaves which is kind of missing in this plant.
I think yes Saussurea gnaphalodes. It is a more mature specimen than other one which seemed to be younger. Red petioles and midrib are quite obvious.
Thanks a lot for ID of plants. It is now clear that all my uploaded plant today belong to species S. gnaphalodes. I was thinking these as different species.
