Hi Eugene,
Truth to tell I gave it a dry summer rest after receiving it in July, watering it in September along with all of the summer-dormant species.  What have I done?

I think your plant is C. suaveolens.  For cultivated plants in a
greenhouse, I wouldn't place too much importance on flowering time.  It may
well be that the unusually mild winter we're experiencing in the eastern
USA has prompted the plant to flower earlier than normal.  Have you been
watering it consistently since you purchased it, or have you been giving it
a dry winter rest?

January.  (It is fragrant).  Can anyone identify it?
