Flora of Chakrata 2012: Picris hieracioides for validation: This one was shot from Budher caves road, around wheat field borders.… kindly validate the id, I hope this one is Picris hieraciodes Linn. Sp. Pl. 2: 792, 1753
I think yes, … Very good photographs
is this the one known as go-jivha?
Thanks … for validation, we had also spotted it during our last year’s visit to the same area… … as far as I know this is not known as “go-jihva”, none of its parts resemble with cow’s tongue. “Go-jihva” I have come to know is Elephantopus scaber, a plant I have yet to see.…experts may comment further, thanks a lot…
but Elephantopus scaber is elephants foot, isn’t it?
But ayurvedic books i currently have list Onosma bracteatum Wall. (Boraginaceae) as Gojvha ,,,, but i distinctly remember trying to id a yellow flower on a branched herb like the one shown in this thread, I had found some old books of indian flora published in uk with handtinted drawings that had this plant and a name go-jivha… i need to see if i can find atleast a xerox copy if saved…
colloquial names can be quite confusing…
