It looks a lot like H. 'Dr. Moy' to me.

@dyzzypyxxy I see you have one. What's your opinion?

Looks like Dr. Moy to me, too Tara. Mine aren't quite blooming yet, but here's a picture from last year:

You're going to love it, Betsy. Nice size plant, doesn't get too tall, but vigorous and will make a really nice clump by next year. You'll be able to give away divisions the year after.

Betsy doesn't it smell great? Breathe deeply! I haven't been home in a week, my Daniel Weeks was the only one blooming before I left. Lots left to sniff later on. Thumbs up
