Hypericum himalaicum ABAUG2016/33 : 2 posts by 2 authors. 9 images.

It took me a while to determine this flower’s ID. Most flowers I saw were incomplete or covered in water. The following images are from my two walks on 31 July and 6-7 August. I believe this is Hypericum himalaicum. Please advise.
A good resource I consulted is here;

Hypericum himalaicum
Mcleodganj-Triund, HP
2400m and above
31 July and 6-7 August 2016.


Thanks, …, for the complete set.

ID Please: Remains unidentified since July,2008

Hypericum perforatum I hope.


This should be Hypericum elodeoides
One identifying feature is that sepals have prominent long-stalked glands on the margins. These glands can be seen in … picture. Unfortunately picture 725 seems to have undergone some software color “enhancement”, while 737 is okay.. …, if you have an unmodified version of 725, or any other showing sepals, please post it.


I think you are right. The plant with reddish tinge seems to be H. elodeoides. The second photograph I have a little doubt that there may not be mix of two plants, the upper green seems to have linear leaves, lower reddish with nearly oval. … may please check from his original photographs.


I think it should be Hypericum himalaicum as per
rather than Hypericum elodeoides as per

VOF Week: Hypericum for id from the trek..: This Hypericum was shot on 16 August 2012 while going back from Ghanghariya to Gobind ghat…identification please…


Styles 3, slightly longer than ovary, petals without marginal gland dots, leaves obtuse……………………I think Hypericum napaulense 


I think Hypericum elodeoides
the stalked glands on the sepals are diagnostic.


Perhaps this should help, The Key from Flora Pakistan 

Petals with marginal black glands; styles 1.5-2.5 longer than ovary; stem always terete, usually unbranched; sepals acute to obtuse; sepals ribbed……………………………………………Hypericum elodeoides
Petals without marginal black glands; style 0.9-1.3 x as long as ovary; stem sometimes 2-6-lined, frequently branched; leaves subobtuse to rounded; sepals not or scarcely ribbed…..Hypericum napaulense
Both may have sepals glandular along margin

But then the controversy ends since Flora of China, Enumeration…..Nepal, The Plant List treat H. napaulense as synonym of H. elodeoides


Thanks a lot … and Sir Ji for identification….and discussion…sepals are glandular here, but ribbed…styles longer than ovary.….H. eleodeoides Syn. H. napaulense it is….


I think it should be Hypericum himalaicum as per
rather than Hypericum elodeoides as per
That’s an interesting proposition … However, I am not able to comment on it yet.
