    Some people can smell things that others can't.
    I have a problem with some philadelphus.
    Have you any other penstemons? Do they smell?

    I bet you have been visited by a cat.  I can’t stand the smell of asteantia. Can’t bring it into the house !

     But I love the cat's pee smell of chrysanthemums, geraniums and sauvignon blanc!

  • Thanks for the feedback! I’m thinking maybe a cat has visited. Anyone know how to deter them as we love this plant but can’t cope with the smell so willing to get rid!

    A million years ago, after yet another thread was started about deterring cats, I said:
