    You should check out the fragrance. It's not like the other end of a dog after eating a five pound bag of Jolly Rancher's green apples.

    Why grow it then?

    That's a nice one, Clark. Looks like a space hog, though.

    Thank you Jon. Just hangs from one of the house length poles. Not much of a space hog.
