Name this smell...?
I was doing some late night gardening last night and pulled this - what i believe could of been a flower? Possibly rose? I'm not certain, i've been weeding around it all summer to let it grow, i believe i ripped it out once already and it came back and since it wasnt terrible looking i let it grow, but the smell... i touched it, it's like pepper, i normally love pepper but i just dont like the smell from touching the plant. Black pepper is the closest smell i can associate it with.
There's a good chance i didnt get all the root as it wasn't terribly easy to get up.
Incase it does come back, any idea or suggestions on what this plant is / was ?
