VoF Week :: DV :: 02 AUG 12 – 0246 :: Saxifraga cernua at Valley of Flowers:
Saxifraga cernua L. … (family: Saxifragaceae)
2 AUG 12
Valley of Flowers … about 11000 – 12000 ft
I think the posted plant could be Saxifraga sibirica L. as per discussion in Prashant’s post.
Yes, you may be right,
Yes, appears so as per POWO specimen.
Looks different from images of S.sibirica as at POWO.
Difference appears to be due to presence of bulbils in the axils of Cauline leaves of S. granulifera as per the keys in Flora of China
