Roscoea cautleyoides 'China White'

Roscoea cautleyoides 'China White' is a form distributed by Paul Christian at RarePlants. He obtained stock from China, described as 'White' but as you can see, some confusion has occurred. This plant appears to be close to R.tibetica, though it is much taller than any of the other forms that I grow. I have spent some time wrestling with a key to try and find a name for this plant but it hasn't really been a good year for me and keys. The hope that they will lead to greater clarity has yet to be fulfilled.
