    I have photographed this at Horton plains about 1km away from former Far inn. Unfortunately I don't have a photograph with leaves. Because leaves of this particular plant was hidden under other grasses at that place. Actually this plant has its leaves on ground level and flower only blooms on a flowering stem of about 30-40 cm long. Leaves described in guide books as 4-10 cm long with hairs and margins coarsely toothed.
