I always thought they were unfairly monikered. Perhaps you have to crush the leaves? Admittedly I never had a good sense of smell.
I did Google when I wrote the post, Jessica, and yes, there is supposed to be a smell when you crush the leaves – but it also told me all parts of the plant are poisonous, so I won’t be crushing any leaves to check it out!
Not as attractive as the orientalis varieties, Janicce, but they have their own charm, and are such a lovely shade of green
