    Sort of a standard wide-lipped Jumellea but flowers are larger than some, and brilliant white. Plant has a nice, compact, clumping habit. Sorry for the lousy light in this pic.

    I haven't bloomed mine, but it lives up to its name and is getting quite tall: over 2 feet so far. It is not at all like your growth habit.

    Very nice! I imagine it will go bonkers with flowers as the plant matures. That is just what jumelleas do. :) Is it fragrant?

    Not sure. It would have to be overpowering for me to detect it.

    Awesome. Mine has two buds growing. I kind of agree with Marni that yours looks a little bit ...different. Yet quite similar! My flowers are more pointy. Congrats once again. :clap:

    I have to go with the label on this one since I don't have anything else to compare it with & it's a one-off plant from an obscure source. I'm interested to see photos of yours when it blooms. Differentiating Jumelleas drive me nuts - sometimes the differences between species are impossible (for me) to chase. I have some other Jumelleas that I know are mis-labeled but trying to figure out what they really are is maddening.
