Your flowers look great. And I, too, want to know about that sultan flower -- it's gorgeous and I've never heard of it before.

Thanks ladyrose & caryl! Sweet sultan's scientific name is Centaurea moschata. It is an annual and the white one has a greater scent than the pink one. It's like a honeyed chocolate scent? Difficult to describe but it is one where you have to put your nose right next to it to smell it. The white one has already given me some seeds. So I will be ready for trades in the fall. If interested let me know so I can put some aside for you both.
