himalayan leptodermis is popular in the west but all pictures i see now on the net are pinkish flowers
and corolla tube seems longer

no body has shown dangling  habit for this plant, ie hanging basket growth

Going by these keys it appears close to L. riparia, but I think it is not listed in Checklist of Nepal.
Also similar images identified earlier as Leptodermis kumaonensis as per https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/m---z/r/rubiaceae/leptodermis/leptodermis-kumaonensis

POWO, CoL and GBIF mentioned about the distribution of  L.riparia in the western
Nepal but does not look like matching as my sp. is not a erect shrub but rather
scandent/ dangling type.

Thank you.
