during summer the rownan tree has a very strange smell coming from it can you help?



What sort of strange smell? The flowers can smell a little odd to some people

I agree Moongrower, one of my girls thinks the flowers smell of wee. i'm not that keen on the smell my self. But it is normal.

I admit it isn't my favourite scent - but I've known far worse in the plant world

I have a rowan Josephs rock in my front garden and the family all agree it smells of cat wee. The smell only lasts for a week or so until the flowers are pollinated and then it will go
