Just a warning about the fragrance. It can be cloying. When I lived in Piedmont years ago, where this plant is almost invasive and seems to be a fixture in most gardens, my neighbors and I couldn't fall asleep at night unless we closed all the windows when it was in bloom. The scent was so strong that it kept us up at night otherwise.

I think fragrance is in the "nose" of the beholder: I love the fragrance - so much so that I'm afraid I might forget it's poisonous and eat it. I admit, though, that I didn't have it outside of my window and had to go outside to get a whiff of its heady perfume but, even still, I don't think I would mind it.
