    Possibly an Aristea.

    Thank you. I have searched images and have not found an Aristea that is similar. I have attached a detail of one flower - note prominent anther & stigma; three part stigma; numerous flowers & buds in a cluster, unlike the pairs in Aristea.

    L. caerulescens is a good match. Thank you.
