Campanual argyritricha from Uttarakhand : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)
Campanula argyrotricha Wall. ex A.DC. (Campanulaceae) is a frequent lithophytic herb in sub alpine and alpine zones of Uttarakhand. It grows in dry rock crevices producing usually bluish flowers.
Here photographed in Upper Alaknanda valley on way to Vasudhara in September.
See my recent postings about the difficulties distinguishing between small-flowered Campanulas in the Himalaya. These images do not match well with the two further postings from Uttarakhand under C.argyrotricha.
Correctly pointed out by …
Fwd: Campanula alsinoides – new to eFI : 3 posts by 1 author.
Further to my comments about the difficulties distinguishing between the smaller- flowered Campanulas in the Himalaya, I have just noticed the records for Campanula made during a botanical tour to Himachal Pradesh in 1986 – this covered the upper Kulu Valley (Rohtang area) and Lahaul as far as Patseo.
They noted Campanula alsinoides from 4 locations: Darcha and a valley East of Darcha, Kyelong & Patseo. Assuming they correctly identified this, it contradicts/ illustrates the strictly limited field-work undertaken for ‘Flora of Lahaul-Spiti’.
C.pallida was also recorded from Kyelong area.
I recollect seeing what I took to be Campanula pallida var. tibetica at the base of large boulders near to Koksar, Lahaul in the early 1990s.
They did not come across Campanula cana.
No mention of Campanula argyrotricha.
Any images ?
I shall post more about various Himalayan Campanulas when time permits.
Identify Pls : Campanula sp.: 2 high res. images.
Please always mention place of photography and altitude, preferable also date.
Place of Photography:- Amarnath Trek, Kashmir
Date – 22 August 2023 (Also mentioned in Captured photo)
I have no idea about Altitude.
Appears somewhat close to images at
So pl. check other related species from the area.
Do the leaves seen in the 2nd image belong to this plant?
Its looks like Campanula alsinoides because of its pinkish strips on the corolla.
so I consider it Campanula alsinoides Hook f & Thom.
Yes, I agree with you as per
