This was again a Dahlia sp., quite larger than growing in gardens.. shot from Shimla, this time with flowers, is this same Dahlia imperialis or some other species...
It is D.imperialis, frequently cultivated in hill stations of Western Himalaya.
Thanks ... I take this as Dahlia imperialis...

Asteraceae Fortnight Part I-Radiate Heads: Tree Dahlia for id from Mussoorie- NS 48 : Attachments (2).  
6 posts by 4 authors.
This very large, almost a tree size Dahlia was shot from near Mussoorie... though no flowers were seen, the leaves and stem made me identify this as a Dahlia sp., can this be Dahlia imperialis as uploaded by ...??
Have you checked for Vernonia?. A tree Vernonia (Vernonia shevaroyensis) occur in Eastern Ghats (Yercaud Hills).
Though there are no flowers (ray florets in one series) it looks to me as D.imperialis. This species is frequently cultivated as perennial ornamental herb in temperate Uttarakhand.
We have a true tree member of Asteraceae which I will upload in the Asteraceae fortnight.
