I tend to agree with Prashant ji. It looks more K. pinnata to me because leaves appear pinnate, lack purple blotches of K. daigremontiana, young flowers are not visible to confirm the nature of corolla
K. pinnata: Corolla contracted at base; leaves especially the later one pinnate; blade oblong, 5-12 cm long, yellow-green margined with red.
K. daigremontiana: Corolla not contracted at base. Leaves lanceolate-oblong, coarsely dentate, green blotched with red dorsally, 15-25 cm long,
