From RSBG Steve Hootman
R. tephropeplum affinity DJHMV#133 This is a recent introduction that appears to be a new species, possibly related to, or maybe a Vietnamese form of, the widespread tephropeplum from the Sino-Himalaya. This is a collection from N Vietnam and many of the new introductions from that region are turning out to be much more tolerant of cold temperatures than their northern counterparts. This possibly new species features interesting narrow and brownish-silvery scaly foliage and clusters of narrowly tubular pink to pale pink flowers. NOTE: This was sold in the past as “xanthostephanum aff. ” but we have since flowered the very precocious seedlings and they are pinkish and much more similar to tephropeplum. (Actually, there is also a “xanthostephanum aff.” with yellow flowers that we have flowered from the same region.) Almost certainly a new species and yet another mystery plant from this exciting part of the world. (+5\R1\2) RSBG#105sd2007
