  1. The article doesn’t state which flowers they used to plant in Kuala Lumpur, but they’re most likely using faulty reasoning. Many flowers commonly available are scentless because they are bred that way. When breeders cross-pollinate for color, bloom size, disease resistance, etc., the scent often disappears. Using “old fashioned” cultivars or cross-pollinating with the straight species can bring back scent less expensively than genetic change in a test tube. Plus, that’s a plug for planting more diversely, rather than in the monocultures which industry has driven us toward.
