I have no clue which it is, Gerard, I just wanted to congratulate you for finding the correct page in the Forum after all today's moves. ;) Your plant, whatever it is, looks in very good health! :D

Gerard :

I agree with Oron 100 %

there are two other evergreen Haemanthus :
pauculifolius
deformis
