    I am trying to root the limb now. The first flowers are opening. They are 1/2 inch long fuzzy tubes that open with 4 yellow points at the top of the tube. When the entire group opens, it is bound to be unique.

    This appears to be Edgeworthia. Google search the name in Images to make sure I’m on the right track.
