Likely a transliteration of a Japanese name, try alternative spellings if searches not turning up much.

ASA site (link, above) gives Galle as reference. I looked there earlier, but didn't make connection with

'Tama no Hada' [Pearl complexion]: white with deep pink stripes, occasional strong to deep pink selfs and white margins, wide round lobes, 4-5"

under Satsuki Hybrids.

There's actually a pretty large number of commercial sites offering it, mostly wholesale which suggests it may be fairly easy to find in garden centers in season - where adapted. Florida may be too far south for Satsuki Hybrids, I don't know.
