Ligularia ?

Yes. Ligularia sibirica is possible, but I am not getting a detailed description to check.

Only Ligularia amplexicaulis, 2- L. fischeri, 3- L. sibirica are known to occur in Uttarakhand as per the information in following document:
Uniyal,B.P., Sharma,J.R., Choudhery,U. and Singh,D.K. 2007. Flowering Plants of Uttarakhand (A Check List). BSMP, Dehradun.

I think the length of the fray florets may not be judgeable until open fully.

What do you say, …
