The Scent Of Rain

The Scent Of Rain

Some people like rain, some people hate it. 

Whichever side you come down on, it influences your mood. 

In Botswana, rain is considered so important that the word pula or rain is the name of their money.

Do you like the smell that comes with rain? That's the plant oil petrichor being released into the air. During dry times, it's absorbed into rocks and dirt. When the rain comes, its distinctive scent is released into the air. If you're looking for a plant that enjoys the water, consider Codon Verticillatus or Water Willow in our wetland plants.
