Main Article Content
During recent botanical explorations in the western Himalaya, three interesting species were recorded from the subalpine-alpine areas, which were hitherto unknown from this region.Â Their occurrence in this region is phytogeographically significant and noteworthy.Â In this paper a brief description of these species along with phenology, distribution, ecology, photographs and phytogeographical notes are provided.
