Offering from division of this excellent selection by our friends at Crug Farm who collected this in Nepal while plant-hunting with Dan Hinkley and Jamaica Kincaid.  The species is typically very robust and stout and this is no exception with green leaves and a red pseudostem.  The white flowers with a light lavender wash are a nice departure from the norm.  This does not like warm night-time temps and hot, muggy humidity - it's from the mountains after all.
