Hi Don.  It is a Val St Lambert pansy.

Typical size for them - but about twice the price I paid for any of mine!

Hi Roy.

Err... I think you may be imagining things! I can see a blue ring next to the lowest flower petal, where a bubble has burst through the colour ground  (visible in the base shot too...), but I am struggling to see a 'B'.   The faulty ground makes the price even more surprising to me.
