Swertia paniculata—Panicled Swertia

Yes the commonest of all, very beautiful!!
Thank you … So far I have seen only three plants but hopefully I will keep discovering them. The most common here so far is the S. ciliata with dozens of plants from 2000m and above.
Thank you … What I know about S. paniculata is that the purple ring at the corolla base is broken (continuous in S. ciliata) apart from the shape of nectaries etc. To me the flower in … blog look like Sweria ciliata.
