Sir This is also from my last years visit. last year we have to curtail our Chakrata visit of 10 days to merely 4 days due to emergency call for election duty. and Election duty so bad thing!!!!!!!. we forget all things flowers etc. Now i recollect data from my old hard disk and sharing last year's pics also. As every photo of mines have Date and time on it, i just skipped mentioning this.
And
Yes Ushadi ji this is cultivated there

Satish ji
THe problem I think lies with FOI. I had written about it earlier also. The lower lip of D. ferruginea is covered with long hairs. The plant on FOI is also D. lanata. Here is how D. ferruginea looks
