Bindu,
This beautiful plant should be Himalayan Lantern (Agapetes
serpens). See the links below:

Certainly a nice inflorescence of a digitalis plant. I had seen it wild near Binsar Uttarakhand(Posted earlier). Used to prepare Digoxin a heart stimulant medicine. Its in your garden...........? Amazing..
