Which species of Cacallia has the sweet aroma?

dandy_line(3B (Brainerd, Mn))November 15, 2011

I bought some Cacallia seed about 5 years ago for my former garden and I want to get some more but am unsure what species it was. The flowers have a strong scent of something like vanilla. I found out that Cacalia suaveolens is called Sweet-scented Indian-plantain which might mean just what it says.

Are there any Cacallia experts out there can tell me what to look for?

Probably Cacalia suaveolens.
