Yes I think same photographed by us also on way to Chakrata, not identified yet.

I am not certain, but this could be a member of the genus Perilla in Lamiaceae.
Thanks dear ... for a big lead
I think yes, Perilla ocymoides
Perilla frutescens Syn P ocimoides have description in Flora of Mussoorie
Interestingly Perilla frutescens (L.) Britton is accepted name as per theplantlist.org with only one synonym Ocimum frutescence L.

Yes Perilla frutescens.
Yes .... I identified it from Flora Simlensis which has P. ocymoides
A reply from another thread
"A few days back I had uploaded a plant for ID from near Dakpathar on Chakrata road. ... had also uploaded plant for ID from Dalhousie. On suggestion from Alastaire we concluded both these to be belonging to Perilla frutescens (syn: P. ocimoides), but on checking my collections from Chakrata trip I discovered that perhaps my this plant from near Kalsi fits much better with Perilla frutescens. The two plants are quite distinct, and evidently different species. Your opinion on this. I am uploading both type of plants, one identified as P. frutescens (yesterday discussion on ... plant) and another which I had initially identified as some species of Elsholtzia, but now think to be true Perilla frutescens. Perhaps you can help to resolve.

This plant may be Perilla frutescens var japonica (Lamiaceae)
Finally identified by ... as Perilla frutescens (L.) Britt. var. japonica as per linked thread.


This is another plant which was also identified as Perilla frutescens on this forum but looks different in glabrous parts and absence on long hairs on the inflorescence, please help in resolving.
As far as photo is concerned, it is Perilla frutescens only as I collected this in Sikkim.

Which is Perilla frutescens?:   few days back I had uploaded a plant for ID from near Dakpathar on Chakrata road. ... had also uploaded plant for ID from Dalhousie. On suggestion from Alastaire we concluded both these to be belonging to Perilla frutescens (syn: P. ocimoides), but on checking my collections from Chakrata trip I discovered that perhaps my this plant from near Kalsi fits much better with Perilla frutescens. The two plants are quite distinct, and evidently different species. Your opinion on this. I am uploading both type of plants, one identified as P. frutescens (yesterday discussion on ... plant) and another which I had initially identified as some species of Elsholtzia, but now think to be true Perilla frutescens. Perhaps you can help to resolve.

To me all your pics and those on the link looks like Perilla frutescens.
Thanks ... Our Dakpathar plant had much broader lower leaves, it grew to more than 2 m and apex was suddenly contracted into a tail like inflorescence, which as you can see is with long white hairs on axis and flowers not really distichous, some what evently distributed.
Our near Kalsi plant is much shorter with shorter with short compact inflorescence with clearly distichous flowers, also the axis is not long hairy. This plant rather resembles illustration on eFlora of Pakistan more.
Let us see some more views
Finally identified by ... as Perilla frutescens (L.) Britt. var. japonica Perilla frutescens var. frutescens respectively as per linked threads.
 
Perilla frutescens (L.) Britt. var. japonica
This plant is distinct green smooth leaved variety of Perilla popular in Japan under name Egoma and in Korea as Duel-ggeh. The stems and leaves are much more smooth not bumby as in typical frutescens, hairs much shorter and closely serrate. In addition to being food supplement, seeds are used for extraction of oil used in Shintoist Ceremonies. Seeds also used as spice. 
Photographed from near Kalsi in Uttarakhand.
Taxonomy of this plant is highly confusing. The combination var. japonica (Haussk.) H. Hara, 1948 was based on Cedronella japonica Hassk., 1856. Whereas this variety is not listed in the Plant List, latter is listed as unresolved name (a status only they can give), GRIN lists it as synonym of P. frutescens var. frutescens; MULTILINGUAL MULTISCRIPT PLANT NAME DATABASE as synonym of P. frutescens var. crispa (Thunb.) Hand., and GBIF as synonym of Agastache rugosa (Fisch. & C A Mey) Kuntze. In light of such controversial treatment, it would be better to recognise it as var. japonica to preserve its identity.
Perilla frutescens (L.) Britton in Mem. Torrey Bot. Club. 5: 277. 1894
Syn: Perilla ocimoides L.
This plant I think is the typical Perilla frutescens.
Kindly validate. Photographed from Dakpathar.

I am not very whether this plant is Elscholtzia ciliata, Perilla frutiscence, or some other species, photographed from near Jim Corbett falls. Please help in ID.
After responding the previous mail, I have seen this mail. I suspect it might be Mosla dianthera, very closely allied to Perilla
Leaves large (more than 5 x 3 cm), broadly ovate to suborbicular; corolla with a ring of hairs at throat; all 4 stamens fertile Perilla
Leaves small (less than 5 x 2 cm), ovate, rarely elliptic; corolla glabrous inside; only 2 stamens fertile, anterior pair reduced to staminodes Mosla
Only based on stamens the genera can be distinguished.

I have cropped three flowers from original image 9312, to give you a better idea about the flower and stamens to make opinion. Attachments (3)
Thanks, but from the flowers especially of the second one shows all are fertile stamens. So I doubt it is Mosla as suspected. I go for Perilla only as leaves also bigger in size. Ofcourse not Elsholtzia as in that bracts are very prominent.
Thanks, ... Is there any other species of Perilla other than Perilla frutescens in Uttarakahand ?
I could only find one species of Perilla in FOP, FON & FOC i.e. Perilla frutescens (Linnaeus) Britton
