Solidago virgaurea from Chakrata Road: Solidago vigaurea L., Sp. pl. 2:880. 1753
Common name: European goldenrod 
Erect herb up to 60 cm tall with alternate lanceolate leaves, up to 12 cm long, upper smaller. Heads radiate, yellow, 8-10 mm across, in long terminal panicle; ray flowers up to 12; achenes ribbed. 
Photographed from Chakrata on way to Deovan and towards Budher caves in September.
how many types of golden rods grow in India? I think ... has some other species today...
The other is Canadian Shot, Solidago canadensis often cultivated in gardens.

ID request-201111-PKA2:  Came across this plant at "Dachigam National Forest" near Srinagar (J & K).
Could this be some Senecio sp.?
Date/Time: 24-09-2011 / 04:45PM
Habitat: Wild
Family" Asteraceae.
Thanks ... you found it flowering
Common in Kashmir, but did not catch in flowering
Solidago virgaurea
Dachigam had many of this plant in flowering.
Yes ... Dachhigam was the area of my Ph.D. research.
The species is very common here as well as elsewhere in Kashmir. I just checked my herbarium collections. They were made in September and October. Last year I went in June and this year June-August and as such missed flowering, but shot it in flowering from Chakrata region.

Habitat: sloping meadow
Habit: sub erect herb, about 1 - 1.5 m high; flower about 1.5 cm long, 1.5 cm across (not sure, could be bit lesser)
Aster I think won't have yellow heads. Looks like some Senecio, but difficult to say without leaves in focus.
Won't be surprised with Solidago virga-aura
Am convinced it to be Solidago virga-aurea.

Habitat: sloping meadow
Habit: herb about 1 m high; flower about 8 - 10 mm across
... have a strong feeling this plant is Solidago virgaurea
.
Yes ... Nice photographs.

I think matches with images at Solidago virgaurea L. 
On my Saturday trek to Triund, I saw these goldenrods in good numbers. Here are some photos. Please correct me if I have been wrong in identifying these as Solidago virgaurea. 6 images.
This must surely be 'Golden Rod', though certainly not just exclusively a European plant. Found from Pakistan to Central Nepal and temperate Eurasia incl. the UK. The only species of this genus known from the Himalaya.
Stewart found it to be very common in the temperate and lower alpine zone in Pakistan & Kashmir from 1700-3700m, commenting that the pubescence was variable.
Collet found it to be common at Shimla (Flora Simlensis). 
Flowers of Himalaya, say "light forests & open slopes" which fits with the habit shown.
In the UK, the species is described as "very polymorphic, with many named varieties differing in stature, pubescence, size, shape and serration of leaves, branching of inflorescence and size of individual heads.
I wonder if one day a taxonomist will recognise these variants as sub-species or even species and so we will have to examine Himalayan specimens more closely!
The common "Golden-rod" of gardens in the UK is S.canadensis but have information on this being cultivated (or escaping) in Himalayan districts.
