I think you are right.  I am also going to ask around our local group 
as I am sure it was either a "give-away" plant that we buy for 
workers at our show and auction OR the person that did the buying for 
the auction last year bought some spurias for that.  I just can't 
remember.  Didn't expect it to live, much less bloom.  But I am 
delighted.  Thanks for your help.
