I am loved for my strong sweet smell
which I release at night. I smell so
strongly in order to attract moths
to come to feed on my sweet nectar.

Who am I?

that comes in many colors. I am a popular
choice in English garden and also grow wild
in the woods. I am a favorite food source for
bumble bees. If you are still not sure of my
name, remember that in the story, Jemima
Puddle duck discovered a fox sitting on
a stump surrounded by me.

 Every part of my plant is edible: the root, 
stem, leaves and flowers. I am a very useful 
plant. In Russia, they use me  to make an 
artificial rubber, but in this country, I am 
considered a pesky weed. You may have 
trouble weeding me from your garden 
because breaking my carrot-like taproot
 will make me grow a new plant. Some 
children make a wish and blow and if 
all my seeds fly off, they believe 
their wish will come true.
