Ligularia amplexicaulis ABAUG2017/23 : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (16)
I had photographed this first on my Indrahar trek when the flowers were not yet fully released from their sheath. When I managed to resist the plant after a week I was rewarded with bright yellow flower-globes. I think this is Ligularia amplexicaulis. Please advise if I have made a mistake in identification.
All the plants were growing next to/among Rhododendron campanulatum trees.

Saw these along the Ghangaria-VOF trail and the Hemkund trails, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
Some of the leaves of this plant were huge.
These have been identified based on the pics available in efi to be occurring in that area.
Kindly validate.
