Id pl of the herb in Ladakh.
Find in Fabaceae
Looks so distinctive but is currently defeating me beyond Fabaceae (Leguminosae).
Should have added that the foliage below and in the background does not belong to the plant whose flowers were photographed.
Would have been most useful to have had images of the leaves, as could well have helped narrow down the possibilities.
Whist some plant species are distinctive enough to reliably identify from a single shot just showing overall “pretty” parts, often it makes it extra hard for those attempting to correctly name it.
Spent a lot of time but no clue. Checked all Uraria as well.
May be some Astragalus but leaves are completely different !
Leaves are of some other plant.
Then Uraria ???
