sweet-smelling flowers!

Awhile back, people wanted to know what was causing the sweet flower scent around certain buildings. I finally got an answer from one mikeer@u. I assume they work for the groundskeepers, since the Miller Library directed my question to them.

From the email:
"That sweet flower scent that you described is that of the daphne odora or sometimes called winter daphne."

Cool. I wonder if it's hard to grow... I found the same plant growing outside the Elizabethan Theater in Ashland, OR when I went down this weekend to see Richard III. It made me smile.

Edit: and if you want to know what to look for, look at this... it grows in bushes around MGH, CMU, etc.
