From Bot. Repos.:
The scent of this plant at night is so very powerful, that by many it may be deemed almost offensive, though by others it is considered as most agreeable; the flavour is nearly assined to the tuberose. This is not a very showy plant, growing about a foot high, and flowers from March, till May or June.
