A Crug Farm Plants collection of the species from near Darjeeling in Northern India under their number BSWJ2103.
It has paler red bracts than some other selections.
A cluster of cold winters (2009-11) killed a number of my more distinctive Cautleya and it has taken me a while to want to come back to the genus.
In the time that has passed a number of new cultivars have appeared but the diversity of the genus in cultivation has reduced.
