    Well that saves me asking the question. I always thought it was “Fargo” as in the town in ND but your use of “farago” had me quite confused. Now we both know, lol.

    The correct word is Fargo rose named for Fargo, North Dakota, a state in the USA where Judith Montano was teaching a class in SRE.

      Yes I know but it is what it is called here – I must correct it. I was contacted by the lady who invented it in Judiths Class and she told me it was Fargo too
