Reseda spp. The genus Reseda was once known for its two economic species, odorata ("Mignonette") and luteola ("Dyer's Weld"), the first used in perfumary, the second to make a brilliant yellow dye. Mignonette was a big deal cut flower during the Victorian era, essentially as home odorizer. Dyers Weld faded economically with the advent of better dyeing through chemistry. We hope to have Mignonette next year.
