Looks a lot like Coppertone?

This plant has spotted leaves, and a wavy border, it gets quiet large, and needs a heavy pot to hold it in. It is extremely handsome. It must have protecting against the cold. Little water in the cold wet months will keep it alive. It can go without water for several months, like 6 at a time. The flower will look like a round bunch of white flowers (like a toilet brush)on a stalk which is the size of a broom handle, the flowers open only a few at a time starting at sun down, the head will flower, only once, then never again. It will have a heavey rootstock under the soil line, I don't believe S.kirkii v. pulchra one has a sweet perfume like some of the other species.
