Mystery White Flower

Firework Stamens, African Linden or sparmannia africana

 

What attracted me to this flower was it’s amazing stamens (maybe I am part bee).

The hub of buds hanging and large leaves make it all around attractive.

The plant stands around 5 foot tall in part shade. It is blooming now in Fremont, CA (in an unseasonably warm winter). It is a perennial. Any ideas?
