Found this at 1900m growing alone about 30cm tallThe bracts are covered in wool and the hairy leaves and habit point again to A. contorta. But if this is A. contorta than my other post may have something different. Please advise

Thanks, …

Asteraceae herb for id-31-3-10 from Lohari panipat : 5 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (1)

An Asteraceae herb for id pls
Lohari (Panipat) 31-3-10

It looks Conzya stricta.

I would say Gnaphalium polycaulon

I too think this plant is Gnaphalium polycaulon Pers. [ Synonym:Gnaphalium indicum, G. multicaule, G. niliacum, G.strictum]. For further details please click in the link provided http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=200023995

It does not look like images at Gnaphalium polycaulon

Psedognaphalium sp. ??

Appears to be  Pseudognaphalium adnatum (DC.) Y. S. Chen as per images and details herein.
