Pearly everlasting is pretty much the same in Europe or the US--neither places approach China for variety or charm in the genus.
|Aster sp. ign.|
|Cassiope pectinata and Bergenia purpurascens|
I wish we could grow Cassiope as easily as we grow Bergenia!
|Corydalis sp. ign.|
In Sikkim we found something very much like this identified as Juncus thomsonii: synonyms or truly distinct?
So strange to think this plant's congeners are tall plumy knotweeds, or the tiny, annual Koenigia islandica! I have seen this thriving in Scotland.
|Minuartia sp. ign.|
One of innumerable sandworts.
|An unknown (sp. ign. sounds so much better) mushroom. Pretty cool, eh?|
I've seen this put into a new genus (Pterocephalodes) only I can't find it referenced anywhere.
|Ranunculus sp. ign. (again!)|
|Rhodiola sp. (you guessed it! ign.)|
I have seen so many rhodiolas in Central Asia, Sikkim, Pakistan and especially Tibet. A group that I love. I only recognize a fraction of the species...
