Well of course I had to run home at lunchtime to sniff my Drac
canariensis bloom. I think it has a "chemical odor" which Harry says
smells like ethyl acetate. BTW, I have some seeds of this that are
ripening if anyone is interested- email me off list.
PS It is such a weed I'm surprised it is considered vulnerable.
