    The plant came with this name, but I haven't confirmed it, so I am open to correction. The mount it is on is about 6.5" tall. I haven't had it very long so hope for more impressive blooming once it takes hold.

    I can't help with the ID but I sure do like the growth habit.

    Shockingly, this could be a correct ID. Agrees with illustration in Seidenfaden as well as Averyanov. Is this plant still alive? Would love to get some flowers preserved in EtOH for SEM.

    I'll have to check if it is and where it is.
