    can someone id this flower for me?

    the plant grows from a vine and the leaves are the ones that you can see in the background.
    The flower is a colony that forms a ball
    ive had many people ask me what this is...
    I received a cutting from a freind of my (passed) grandmother so its not possible to go back to the source and ask

    Its one of my favorites

    Thanks in advance.

    We have a plant like that in our bathroom. We have had it for several years and this summer is the first time it blossomed. It has had three clumps of blossoms with the last one still there. The vine has really started to grow since the first blossoms. The leaves on ours is different than the one at the website.
