This species was found in Sikkim and extends into Nepal. Apparently belonging to the Petiolares Section, more images of this species are necessary to further our understanding (see blog post). An efarinose species with large membranous bud scales at the base of the plant. Leaves oblong to ovate-oblong, rounded at the apex, rounded or slightly cordate at the base with an undulate or slightly crenate margin, and a distinct petiole. Scape 2-12cm with an umbel of 1-4 (or to 10) purple to deep blue exannulate (or possibly annulate) flowers. Capsule of the Petiolarid type, dehiscing by crumbling. John Richards lumped the two species P. chamaethauma and P. chamaedoron into P. pulchra but more information is necessary to understand the relationships between these species and so I am keeping them separate for now.
