I hope this is ok to post. It goes with gardens, which are crafty right? I just bought this plant and the place I bought it from didn't have markers and I didn't ask the name. Unfortunately I have misplaced my camera cord to upload photos so I don't have any. But, at first I thought the plant was lavender. It has a large bunch of purple flowers that are very scented and smell, to me, like lavender. However, the stalks are really thick and look like tulip stalks, with the long leaf-like parts extending upward. The flowers are also larger than lavender and are much more waxy feeling. Any ideas? Sorry, I know that description wasn't the best and it's hard without photos, but I'm trying to look up how to care for it.
Thanks in advance!

Don't be jealous, be grateful! I live in Texas and last week I had the air conditioning on because it was about 80 degrees, but this week we've been having freezing rain. It makes no sense, is a little scary, and makes it impossible to know what type of clothes to wear. I would be happy to have snow (although maybe with temperatures a little higher!) and no flowers instead of crazy, polar opposite weather in a two week span!
