Myosotis asiatica (Vestergr.) Schischk. & Serg., Fl. Sibir. Occ. ed. 2, 9: 2272 1937. (syn: Myosotis alpestris subsp. asiatica Vestergr.);
ID requested for a small shrub photographed at Gulmarg. Flower size 8 to 10 mm.
I hope Myosotis alpestris
If found in the wild it could be Forget-me-not Vergissmeinnicht (Myosotis sylvatica). Without details, difficult to name.
I agree with … about absence of details.. forget me not flowers may resemble this , but…….????
Yes, this could well be Myosotis asiatica (M. alpestris subsp. asiatica).
Recorded as very common in N.Pakistan and Kashmir @ 2600-5000m.
The only other species of this genus recorded for Kashmir is Myosotis palustris (M.scorpioides var. palustris) which is very common in wet places but only to 3000m
I was basing my previous comments upon Stewart and a much poorer understanding of the genus. As this specimen has only just come into flower and one cannot see its typical growth habit, no fruits, barely discernible calyces (though they have spreading hairs), it may well still turn out to be M.asiatica but M.sylvatica should be considered. Would need better images of flowers (esp. calyces) and ideally fruit to be more sure.
VOF Week: Boraginaceae herb for Id 1: This one was shot from way to Ghanghariya from Gobind Ghat…help in id is requested…
May be Myosotis caespitosa of Boraginaceae
I think yes
Very good photographs
I think it may be Myosotis alpestris subsp. alpestris
I find this specimen a bit confusing. Difficult to tell about the calyces. Might be M.asiatica (syn. M.alpestris subsp. asiatica). Really do need better close-up view of calyces to certain.
