Roscoea cautleyoides 'Himalaya'
Roscoea cautleyoides 'Himalaya' is recent introduction. It is being distributed as a form
of R.cautletoides , but it has been suggested that it may be a white form of R.tumjensis.
I am retaining it under R. cautleyoides for now, because that is how it seems to me at present,
but am keeping an open mind. It has large well formed flowers and makes a good show with its first
flush of flowers. A second flush of flowers follows in august, but made rather a feeble show this
year. It may become more impressive as the clump matures.
