Reichb ., Crataegus oxyacantha Linn ., Dracocephallum heterophyllum/ Benth ., Hippophae rhamnoides Linn ., H. salicifolia Don., H. tibetana  Schlt., Hyssopus officinalis Linn. and Rosa webbiana  Royle were identified which are having great medicinal importance but so far these were not exploited commercially in India.
