Common name: China Aster

ASTERACEAE Fortnight Part-I Radiate Heads May 1-14: Callistephus chinensis for validation from Uttarakhand_DSR_49 : Attachments (4).  4 posts by 3 authors.
This is an occasional ornamental in Pantnagar to which I suspect as Callistephus chinensis.
Kindly validate or otherwise.

The last picture ( DSR_4.JPG) is one of the Chinese asters, C.chinensis for sure. I have this plant in my house. The other pictures also look like varieties of C.chinensis only. The species has considerable number of varieties in different colours.

miniature aster or china aster

If not wrong, it is Callistephus chinensis.

My guess- Bracteantha bracteata.
…, were d bracts papery ??

No …, it is not Helichrysum bracteata or Bracteantha bracteata now known as Xerochrysum bracteatum (Vent.) Tzvelev
Perhaps true identity has to be found
