The correct name is Exotic Lavender Lady as it was written in the tag. As the words "Tahitian", "Moorea", ... "Exotic" forms also part of the name.

This is an invalid name. HibisKiss is a reseller of Dupont's cvs and they have renamed most of his varieties. The original name is the one given by Dupont which is 'Cosmic Dancer'.

This is an invalid name. Costa Farms is a reseller of Dupont's cvs and they have renamed many of his varieties. Although they called 'Tiki Temptation' to the original Dupont's 'Golden Halo' the one in the picture is actually 'Who Dat'.
