Fragrance on the leaves of peaches and cream?

collieloverAugust 26, 2010

Oh wow! I have had this brug for 9 years and never noticed the smell on wet leaves, I gave my sister a cutting this spring and she told me she smells creamsickles when she waters the plant. I told her she was crazy, so I went out and rubbed a leaf and smelled just a wet leaf! A week later I was standing next to my sister when she was watering and I'll be darned, I got a wiff of creamsickels. Is this something everyone knows and I'm late to the show? Cindy

I don't have peaches and cream, but I have noticed a scent on the leaves of maya sometimes. I thought I was nuts, but sometimes after I got the leaves wet it had a citrus smell. I haven't noticed it much lately, but maybe it doesn't come off much since the weather is cooler. BTW this is the first year I have noticed this, never before.
