I don`t really know for sure but somehow it reminds me of a Callisia. That might be a hit or miss since it is a wild guess! I need to look around the internet. Edited to add: The family is Commelinaceae. Karen

Could it be a Ti plant (Cordyline)? The flowers look similar.

What do you think about this picture I found? http://www.cfgphoto.com/img11536.htm

Here is another photo of Cordyline stricta but I think the leaves look different. Maybe on the right track?

I think you are very close the flowers look good the leaves a bit different , but real close
Thank you I really had no idea where to start.

I do not think I have ever seen a Ti plant in bloom.
