Help me identify this plant please Senior moment, sorry. I know it begins with "h", sounds Korean & is a bit unpronouncable, but just can't remember it's name!

Your comment was like a game of clues! Glad people helped you out as we didn't know the botanical name.

Yes @cyndi & @gjones I knew all you good GTers would know & as long as I remember it starts with H then I should be able to find it! 😀

Just one of those plants whose name I have a mental block about! 😁Thanks. It's doing surprisingly well in that wall basket, as it likes very damp conditions. Then again, we've had plenty of rai here! @rachellescott
