My standard references don't even recognize the genus, so I'm at a loss. I got seed for this plant through the HPS/MAG exchange, and did manage to coax two of them to germinate. If those survive, this page will become more useful, as I can add my own observations! Native to Japan, scented foliage.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
