I live in Cape Town, South Africa and I have a rhizomes growing in a pot 
that I transplanted from our previous garden. Can someone assist me in 
identifying this plant?……

Root: rhizomes
Leaves: fern like, rather woody when dried.
Flower: long stem, about 1 meter with a simple cluster of little 
flowers. each flower has 5 green sepals which curl up on opening and 5 
yellow petals with a wide dark brown stripe.
