    I checked a newly opened flower last night. Allthough there is a slight fragrance, it's not very pronounced and not something I would consider pleasant. Almost a musty smell to it.

    I checked my CSUF blooms. they have a very faint smell. Sort of like a violets with a hint of grape

    Pyro, that is awesome! I can't wait to try this cultivar. Do you think it would be difficult to hybridize for fragrance among Pinguicula? It obviously worked in the case of P. 'Titan', but according to Jason, the results are not so pleasant. But fragrance, and perceptions thereof, is such a subjective thing to begin with.

    Pyro, the Agnata you are referring to would not by any chance be the same one you sent me?

    Wes,

    It might be. Did I label it CSUF or fragrant flower??

    Oh gracious! LOL... I don't think I could find that info even if I wanted to. I'm not sure I recall either being on the note you gave me, though I'm sure one of them was on there. I guess the only I can find out is to wait for it to flower again and smell it! LOL

    Wes,

    Does the plant has leaves that are sort of bluish/green?

    If you look at the "seam" where the top of the leaf and the bottom of the leaf meet is it red (or red tinged?)

    Does it form a winter rosette?

    Is the flower fuzzy and basically white in colour with purple marks where the petals meet?
