    I have no idea. I did not think to sniff it. LOL. As pretty as it is, I wonder if it even needs a fragrance to attract a pollinator? Hmm?

    Very nice... those sepals looks so long... putidum sounds like it would smell bad... which is in itself good

    Ok, I finally remembered to stick my nose into it and give it a 'whiff'. AND...nothing. It is fragrance free. I guess this one relies on its fuzzy/frillies to attract a pollinator - unless it has fragrance at night.
