I have no idea what this is for sure, although I had been told both autumnalis and zambesaicus before (which is why I don't have the ID for sure). I was actually fascinated by the earlier message about all the named hybrids that you had on the list. Certainly nothing named like that over here to my knowledge, at least I have never seen them anyway. We do get a good selection in flower in nurseries each year now, ranging from pure white through the pinky ones. Must admit that my pink flowered purple-leaf is one of the better "coloured" flowers I have seen. I am very pleased with it as it is a good flower colour, with the bonus of the wonderfully dark leaves for ages before it actually flowers. My white one could easily be 'White Dwarf'..... how would I go about finding out for sure? Whatever it is it is a very good reliable flowerer every year, and is a lovely clean pure white and good proportions of leaves to flowers. Thanks for the response. Cheers.
