After a bit of research it doesn't sound like anything that strikes my interest..The flowers have no scent..

But it makes a beautiful shrub and blooms a lot, keeps its leaves longer than most.

Loooove my pudica. My leaves look more like a penis not any spoon I've seen. Sorry. Im not being vulgar here. But that is trully the leaf shape! Like Hetty said, they bloom beautiful plumeria bouquets that last and last. Mine has not bushed out and prefers to be tall and leggy like an upright tree. A skinny tree with lots if flowers.
