Your plant looks very interesting but if it is not just one of the many varaitions of tibeticum it is something very close. The vigour suggest a hybrid but which one? Its possible natural hybrids may occur between tibeticum and other species close by. I would suggest yunnanense or even franchetii as possoble candidates.

Really the only way to be sure is to get a DNA opinion and as far as I am aware this facility is not yet available to growers.

Just enjoy it - what is a name? They come and go as knowledge progresses.
