Description: Described in my notes as been common in the area we collected the seed of this wonderfully white woolly species deep in the Lachen Valley in northern Sikkim on our way back from the Chinese border in 2002. Yet rare and unfamiliar in cultivation. In the wild it formed large much branched shrubs with silvery long pointed ovate foliage held on rounded white stems. With long paniculate inflorescences held terminally and in the apical axils, which had held the long tubed white-yellow flowers widely flared at their throats which are a deep yellow-orange on their interiors. Forming a small to medium sized shrub for us preferring full sun in a freely drained soil with some moisture retention.
