Thanks much for the leads on identification of my plant. It does look
a lot like U. lepidota in the illustration (by far the closest match so
far), but the leaves seem a bit different to me - my plant's leaves look a
bit more blunt-tipped, and the flowers are not as open. I'll try to get
some close-up photos of the flowers once it has another flush of them (it
flowers several times per year).
