 Russ; I do not know anything about the plant.

After 3-4 years my plant got 3 ½ stalk. It is 40 cm. high and the flower 
sits on a 7 cm. long stalk. The ovary is white with a little pink and the 
stamens are white. Oblong leaves, 12 cm. at the widest point. The flower is 
white-pink as you can see in the picture.
