Flowers look a bit like A. cameleon. We have it in a pot so habit is somewhat different. JohnnyD

Agreed - flowers look like A. triphyllum Chameleon.

The flowers here are long gone, as are the leaves, but from memory, the leaves don't look right, but that could be the 'photo'. From memory the leaves should be flat, matte and slightly hairy, but memory is not infallible.....
