ID that plant plzz, Lahore Pakistan
Check for Grangea maderaspatana (Madras Carpet)
Asteraceae
no, i also have a seedling photo of the same plant.. its leaves are changed and some how thick
You are right, last nite when i saw this I had thought that this is not madras carpet
leaves of this case are different
succulent almost with daisy like flower
I need to search and study
Please check if Epaltes australis Less. can be found in that region.
Perhaps I was wrong, it rather looks like Centipeda minima (L.) A.Braun & Asch.
Agreeing with ..., this is likey to be Centipeda minima .....

To me this is Centipeda minima from Asteraceae...
is it not spheranthus indicus of asteraceae...
Plz check Sphaeranthus indicus
Centipeda elatinoides (syn. Centipeda minima) as per another thread.
It is surely Centipeda elatinoides syn. C. minuta, commonly known as sneezing weed. It is known as Naak Chhikru (means which induces sneezing in nose) in Himachal.
From earlier thread of 2013
