Delphinium cashmerianum from Paddar valley J&K : Attachments (1).  4 posts by 2 authors.
Botanical name: Delphinium cashmerianum
Family: Ranunculaceae
Location: Paddar valley J&K
Date: 2nd August 2011
Altitude: 3500 meters asl
Checking at the description and photographs on the net I find there is lot of mix up between D. brunonianum, D. cashmerianum and D. vestitum. Even the plant depicted in Flowers of Himalayas as D. cashmerianum does seem to have leaves much different than found typically in D. cashmerianum
Not the Photograph of Flowers of Himalayas but description seems to match this plant of D. cashmerianum (which says it resembles D. brunonianum but differs in not being glandular hairy in upper parts and smaller less inflated flowers mostly 2-3 cm)
Your plant in that respect seems to be correctly identified as D. cashmerianum in your another mail (although flowers are fairly large in your plant).
Can this plant be Delphinium himalayae
I have seen the photograph of this plant on the wall calender of BGSB University Rajouri during my recent visit.
Kindly confirm the D.
I think D. himalayai is a much different plant with purplish blue flowers in one-sided spikes, flowers blackish in centre. Pl. see plate 5 of Flowers of Himalaya. Also check the following:
Plus it is not reported from NW Himalayas.
