Suddenly a bloom...and it beats the heck out of me what it is!!! Lost the tags. I am sure it is a hybrid...but which one...any help? The entire 'head' is small...and the flowers are very small... edited to note that there IS a slight greyish/blueish cast to parts of the stem and leaves...

With those variegated leaves that one looks like my Hedychium "Tahitian Flame".
