ID required for Nepal Pea
« on: November 04, 2013, 07:19:26 AM »
Please help me for an ID- found in Northern Nepal at around 3500 -4000 metres.
I thought it could be an Oxytropis sp.
Cheers.

Hmm? Does that not have plain violet , more rounded flower heads and more silvery leaves?   Those dark blotches in the centre are rather lovely ..... hope you find a name.
Was this seen on the trip where you had some grant assistance from the SRGC, Doug?

 edit : I see this description mentions "magenta" flowers.... :-\

Looks to me like Oxytropis cachemiriana
Tivon, in the lower Galilee, north Israel.
200m.
