Flower from Phulchowki Peak Nepal : 16 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (1)
Date is 6th Sept, elevation is 2600-2700 m
Flower image not clear but looks like Isodon coetsa (Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don) Kudô !
I don’t believe Isodon coesta is correct the leaf type is very different. I am attaching another photo.
Still quality of flower image is not clear. It is so blurred!
And one more thing , please post images as many as possible including abaxial and adaxial leaf, stem, inflorescence, close up flower at different angles, fruits if available and habitat.
Yes, I understand and apologise for the poor quality of these photos. I study odonata and I know how important a good photo is. I have two more photos. These are not the best either but maybe will help. If an ID is not possible I won’t include these in my blog or try another trip to get more photos.
Please check Isodon scrophularioides (Wall. ex Benth.) Murata !
I think it is Isodon repens, you can also visit the specimen here:
To me it is more of Scutellaria voilacea, Author may double check for confirmation
I doubt about Scutellaria violacea ! Even elevation does not match !
Thanks a lot, …,
Yes it is very close to Isodon repens as in the herbarium at GBIF and POWO as said by …
