Reseda odorata

Mignonette
Resedaceae
Annuals

Native to North Africa. Grows 1 to 1 1/2 ft. tall and wide; rather sprawling. Light green leaves. Not a particularly beautiful plant, but the remarkable spicy-sweet fragrance of its flowers makes it well worth growing. The small blossoms are greenish with a coppery or yellow tinge, carried in dense spikes that become loose and open with age. Flowers dry up quickly in hot weather.
