Well obviously I'm the wrong person to make the first comment here! I shall have to return and see what other people tell you. I posted a flower I didn't know on Friday Flowers and Nick the host of that meme told me what it was right away.

I have no clue but I love it purely for the purple flowers! Does it have a fragrance?
