Reseda odorata 'Mignon Finest Mix'

[Photo: Reseda odorata Mignon Finest Mix seeds.]Reseda odorata, known in English as "sweet mignonette" and in French as réséda odorant, is an annual native to the Mediterranean. It is grown for its very fragrant but not especially showy greenish flower spikes.

This is my first year growing mignonette. I am a sucker for fragrant plants, but since I've never actually smelled this one, and the flowers are nothing to look at, I'm only growing a half dozen from seed to see if I like it. The seeds are a bit small and fiddly, though not nearly as bad as the nicotiana seeds.
