I'm putting together my list of possibles for my landscape and I came across Eleagnus. I know smell is very subjective, but can someone try to help me with a description of the smell?
I think I may have smelled this before, but I'm not sure. I believe this is related to a bush that grows along ditch banks in central New Mexico, and has a very strong, musky, almost rotten, smell, a bit like a mix of ligustrum and just a dash of rotting garbage? I would describe it as not a very good smell, and I imagine many would be off-put. Do I have the right bush?
