Flowers i captured in Nathia gali
I would like other forum members help me identify the exact species name of these flowers. I will post more flowers with passage of time.

chrys. leucanthemum, commmon daisy

honeysuckle tree/shrub. Not lonicera japonica for sure. slightly fragrant flowers.
Image

2 Types of clematis i captured. This is first one. My guess is clematis armandi. Growing wild. Fragrant flowers.

This hydrangea, grown by a gardener in nathia gali. Two plants with different colors. Actually there is a dwarf one and there is tall one. This one is dwarf and local. Imported was yet to bloom at the gardener's house. Now someone should tell me what is the exact species!!!!

Izhar is right this cent pnt bearded iris,very common in Galiyat and even in Abbottabad.it even grow in the gravyards side by side with dafodiles.the other color which is even more common is the purple bearded iris.Hydrangeas are not wild in galiyat.i have even seen wild smal nurcissus in Kalabagh PAF base Nathiagali.they have planted Indian Dahlia i have never seen so beautiful Dalia any other place.

Need help with the ID of this common shrub of murree. My guess is Himalayan indigo, Indigofera heterantha.
Image

This is a wild flower abundant in nathia gali. Can someone ID this as well?
Image

Murree and galiyat are filled with this very common tree. Indian Horse Chestnut tree with botanic name Aesculus indica. Never seen in lahore though.

More to follow next week.
