This contains a somewhat sticky and slightly viscous liquid which is very fragrant. The white flowers have dried off as can be seen from the brown thing.
Grows great under my large oak tree in the shade. Turn the flower upside down and squeeze out the "juice". Save it in the frig and put it on my hair. Smells wonderful!
