Could be any of the above.  The problem is that the vast majority of the
plants of Aphrodite being sold, especially by mass marketers, have never
bloomed.  They are grown from tissue culture, are indistinguishable from
plantaginea until they bloom, and do not always come true.  Unless you buy
from someone who grows them long enough to see them flower, you will never
know if you are really buying Aphrodite.
