Allardia glabra Decne [=Waldheimia glabra(Decne.) Regel] is a rarer alpine perennial herb usually growing above 4000m altitude in Uttarakhand. Entire plant is aromatic and makes mat over the ground.
It is in fact reproduced from a photograph of my optical camera; hence the quality is not up to the mark.
Here photographed above Kedarnath, Uttarakhand at an altitude of 4600m.

Very beautiful alpine plant..
Very beautiful plant.
Flowers of Himalaya (FOH) gives a very simple and user friendly classification of Himalayan Asteraceae plants.
1) Of course this comes under the group of plants where flower heads with both tubular disc florets and strap shaped ray florets.
Next it comes under the group in which pappus is present.
This group is divided into two subgroups according to colour of ray florets whether....
... ... ... purple or sometimes white (6 sp.)/ yellow ray florets.(7sp)
Waldhemia genus comes under first subgroup.
Waldhemia glabra is a low spreading or tufted mat forming perennial, with a small rosette of deeply lobed leaves. Ray florets 1-1.5 cm blunt; disc broader than rays, disc florets yellow.
Most of the features nicely seen here.
