    Hello Giaovannarosa,

    Looks to me like a rare Alba form of the species C. Gaskelliana. (Look it up on the net.) C. Gaskelliana " White Heritage" was used in breeding 50 years ago. C. Gaskelliana was used because it tends to flower as fast as it grows in heads of up to 4 or 5 blooms. In a warm climate will flower at least 3 times per year.
    I have one of those hybrids C. Andrew Mead and it flowers twice a year even in the cool climate zone. Not what show people call show shape but has a beautiful perfume in the morning.Grows like a weed. At one flowering I had 200 blooms out at once in a shade house only 12 metres long.

    Regards.

    Note TH ecomment of Halloamey. C.Bow Bells was a primary hybrid bred from C. Gaskelliana.It all points to your plant being C Gaskelliana.

    Thank you Bruce. I'll look it up. It just finished blooming. It looks like it's making a new shoot. I'm wondering if it will bloom again.
