Swertia  Wall. from Chakrata:  This lovely looking plant was photographed from the wild on Deoban-Chakrata road in September 2011
This one is Swertia paniculata Wall. Pl. Asia. Rar. 205, 1832; Fl. Simlensis, 326; Ophelia paniculata D. Don., Philos. Mag.J. 1836; Swertia dilatata C.B. Clarke, F.B.I. 4: 122,1883.
It is not Swertia paniculata It is Swertia ciliata
Rectification of mistake, this is how one remembers for long.
This is I think Swertia paniculata Wall. Thanks to ...
All the species of Swertia are a treat to eyes. This one was captured from Deoban-Chakrata road in September 2011

Swertia paniculata? ABAUG2016/16 : 6 posts by 4 authors. 4 images.
I found two plants of this swertia, one at about 2600m another just near the top at 2850m approx. Could this be Swertia paniculata?

I think yes, nice photographs.
To me it seems to be Swertia ciliata...

Thank you ... for correcting me. It does look like S. ciliata.
