    IT'S ONE OF THESE 

    https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/details?plantid=694

    THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES.

    BE CAREFUL, IF YOU BUY ONE, TO CHECK THAT IT IS A FLOWERING VARIETY. I GOT ONE HOME ONLY TO FIND A TINY NOTE ON THE LABEL SAYING "DOES NOT FLOWER"!

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
