I bought some months ago a baby kumquat from the supermarket at a bargain price and repotted it.
besides growing itself quite a lot, something else grew with it.
It looks to be a clover, maybe trifolium alexandrinum but can't be sure.
The flower has a wonderful fragrance which can be sensed from some distance.
I'm really loving this perfume and if i'd knew what species it is i might stretch and look for seed to grow it some more.
As i said in the beginning, i bought a kumquat in a pot from the supermarket.
It most probably came from Italy ...
I placed it in a larger pot where i added some local soil plus some store bought one.
After some time i sensed some wonderful fragrance from this pot and i thought the kumquat had flowered ...
But no, it was this suspect.
Now, i use this same soil mix to repot hundreds of other plants and no perfumed flowers arose till now so i think this "clover" came from the original pot.
That means most probably it came from the mediterranean area which made me suspect trifolium alexandrinum.
As a society, we devalued farming as an occupation and encouraged the best students to leave the farm for 'better' jobs in the city. We emptied America's rural counties in order to supply workers to urban factories. Michael Pollan
