Don't even know how I acquired this plant. It puts out new little ones like an airplane plant, but is very different. With limited or filtered sun, the leaf margins turn purple. I have propagated some by removing the little ones. Then suddenly these long, flowering stems arose from the center of the mature plant. Very unusual behavior and would really appreciate identification.

I'm surprised you didn't mention how good the flowers smell!
