Appreciate any help you all can provide in ID'g this guy. Just started to send up flower scrapes in the last couple days. The largest leaf measures 5" x 2 1/4".

Lancofolia or possibly clausa if the flowers don't open. Here's clausa.

Not sure when Leather Sheen blooms as mine is new but that is what it reminds me of.

I've done more research on Lancifolia, Clausa, and Leather Sheen. The flowers are opened so that eliminates Clausa. Leather Sheen blooms late spring, early summer so another elimination. I'm pretty sure this one and about 5 more are Lancifolia.

Thanks everyone for your help.
