This species is widely distributed in the more northerly parts of South Asia, from the eastern foothills of the Himalayas in northern India and Bhutan, through Thailand, southern China, Vietnam and adjacent territories. It is quite common and not considered endangered. There is considerable floral and vegetative variation in the species, including differences in corolla shape and color, and in the length of the calyces.

Exhibited in the 2020 virtual show of the Gesneriad Society.
