What is the name of the Paisley Floral Pattern... ????

What is the name of the flowers that accompany  Paisleys sometimes... the floral pattern can be seen without paisleys also.... They are all over my house.  I guess I am drawn to them ..

The paisley its self is described as " Paisley or Paisley pattern is a term in English for a design using the boteh or buta, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian origin" from wiki.


So I have found the pattern under DAMASK however damask is a type of weave of fabric that uses these flowers but the name refers to the fabrick not the print

I have found it under JACQUARD which means a raised design - again a type of fabric not the name of the print itself

Now I have found it under HENNA flowers but that refers to how the pattern is applied to the skin and not the name of the pattern

\I found it under persian lotus flowers,   and Baroque era, Lotus, but still no real concept name for the design in total.
