White mignonette

Reseda alba, Karori, Wellington, New Zealand

Resedaceae is a small family in the glucosinolate-producing Order Brassicales.  Reseda alba, white mignonette, is a cottage garden flower grown for the sweet scent of the flowers, and it’s naturalized in New Zealand.  These ones were semi-wild on a crib wall in Karori, Wellingon.
