Cephalaphora aromatica

Cephalaphora, it smells heavenly! I just discovered this plant in the thompson morgan seed catalogue early this spring. It's hard to make out in the pic, so next year I will try to set it in front of a darker plant for contrast. It's a sweet little plant, with little bumpy-ball flowers. Only one came up from the seeds.. hopefully it will seed itself.

That looks very cool! Do the flowers dry well?

I have no idea if they can be dried, but I shall try it. I have a feeling not, because they seem fragile plants. I'll let you know.

Yes, it's difficult to describe a scent. It is the leaves of this plant that has the scent. I say it smells like mangos, fresh and sweet. My hubby says bananas and lemons. My son says apples.
In the seed catalogue, it says the leaves smell like apples, so I suppose my son has the best nose!

Hi Salix

I´m from Portugal and I became acquainted with your blog after searching some information about cephalaphora on Google as I had ordered some seeds on By now they are only tiny seedlings but I´m confident they will grow nicely. Actually , I was happy when I noticed that only three days after sowing they were already growing.

There are many plants that can be grown in these wetlands like: red maple, silver maple, carpinus carolianiana, quercus phellos etc. No matter which plant you grow, they will definitely serve the purpose of enriching the natural environment and maintaining the ecological balance. The only thing to be kept in mind is that, you must take the proper guidance and also see with what is your aim of doing the plantation. native plants tree nursery

I'm trying to grow it in my tropical climate. It smells heavenly (like "green apples"???, sweet). The seeds have the scent too, but they don't store well and fresh seeds are needed for success. Don't bury the seeds, germination is fast (2-14 days).

Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case. Sbobet Sbobet Casino
