Unknown historic - ID help appreciated

A cautionary tale of keeping one's ID tags legible:

This bloomed in one of my housemate Gesine's pots
last week - the tag (done some years ago with a
Sharpie) was faded to completely blank!

It's not very tall (maybe IB height) but things
often bloom short for us. Also, its form is old
enough that it probably dates from the time before
TBs got as tall as they do now. (I would guess from
the form that it's something from 1910-1920.)

Probably the most distinctive thing about it is
its scent - a most un-iris-like sweet floral scent,
reminiscent of honeysuckle.

Any ideas?
