Myosotis sylvatica, the wood forget-me-not or woodland forget-me-not,[1] is a species of flowering plant in the family Boraginaceae, native to Europe.
It is a short-lived herbaceous perennial or biennial growing to 12–30 cm (5–12 in) tall by 15 cm (6 in) wide, with hairy leaves and a profusion of disc-shaped, intensely blue (occasionally white) flowers in Spring.

Stace[2] describes this plant as having the following characteristics:
Upright, to 50 cm; softly hairy, with hairs at more-or-less right-angles to the main stem.
Flowers grey-blue, to 8mm across, flat in profile; sepal tube with hooked hairs; April–July.[3]
Mature fruit dark brown, shiny.
Mature calyx on spreading stalks longer than sepal tube; calyx teeth spreading to expose the ripe fruit.
Basal leaves stalked, in a rosette; upper leaves not stalked.
Generally found in woods, scree and rock ledges; common throughout the British Isles.

Primulaceae from Pangi – 2- id-Al012312-A:
Another observation of Primula family from Pangi…

Location Pangi Valley Himachal
Altitude 3000 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild
Height 2 feet (trailing)
Season July-August

Not Primulaceae … It is Boraginaceae
Members are difficult to identify without fruits, but looks like Myosotis sp.

Myosotis alpestris ??

Thank you … and …,  about it being Myosotis alpestris… I am sure … would be able to tell us a lot about it.. though it looks like it … but I am not aware of the various characteristics of the species… and without the fruits… maybe difficult

Can it be Myosotis stricta as per

By no means a Primula….it is a Boraginaceae member

Or can it be Myosotis refracta subsp. chitralica Kazmi as per FOP & illustration herein.
Does not seem to match with images of Myosotis stricta at Flowers of India  Wikipedia  usda  Flowers – NatureGate
Seem more close to Myosotis laxa subsp. caespitosa (Schultz) Hyl. ex Nordh. as per FOC illustration

Once again I consider M.laxa subsp. laxa is ruled out because we can (just) detect some spreading hairs on the calyces.
M.stricta/ refracta does not fit.
So we are down to M.arvensis or M.sylvatica again (not forgetting M.asiatica, which I had on the two previous occasions but does not fit this).
This appears less branched than two previous examples and what appear larger flowers. I am thus thinking of M.sylvatica on this occasion.


Herb for ID from Chopta Forest Uttarakhand-07012022-2: 5 high res. images.
Please help with the ID of this herb, Myosotis?,
clicked from Chopta forest, Uttarakhand, 1-6-2013

As per BSI checklist, two species agave distribution in Uttarakhand:
Myosotis arvensis
Myosotis sylvatica
Keys are available in Flora of Pakistan.
Both species are rather close.
You may decide between the two.

Based on flower size it should be M. sylvatica, but never seen white flowers in Myosotis.
