I have been looking to ID this plant and have not been able to find the name for it. I got it from a lady that i used to work for. She used to live in Korea and said that it was used in bridal bouquets in some asian countries. She never knew the proper name for it and just called it a bridal flower. The only way i can think to describe the smell is a faint sweet, somewhat minty type smell. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Justin

Hi Justin,

That's Calotropis gigantea; the common name is crown flower. It's sometimes used in Hawaiian leis as well.
