I agree
Only that Eustoma grandiflorum is a synonym of Eustoma exaltatum subsp. russellianum

I agree and Welcome! Qans. It's often used in floral bouquets, maybe that's where this individual flower came from. Many still call it by its old name Lisianthus.

Edited to add, on checking it seems Lisianthus was not an old superceded botanical name for it but somehow became the common name.

I had them in my wedding bouquet after I grew them and saw how beautiful they were. Purple being my favorite color.

Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.
