The Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, vol. 30, 2001, describes this cultivar: This hybrid Pinguicula was created at by Leo C. Song, Jr. on 17 July 1987. The seed parent was a fragrant clone of P. agnata we grow at California State University at Fullerton. This is the only fragrant Pinguicula we have, and its taxonomic status is still uncertain. The pollen parent was an unidentified Pinguicula collected by David Verity near Guanajuato, Mexico in 1975. The pollen parent forms a hibernaculum below the surface of the ground, sometimes at a depth of over 1.5 cm (1/2 inch), and has flowers similar in form to P. gypsicola. It may be P. macrophylla.
