Vanilla smelling flower - groovyjoker - 07-08-2006

Hello - can anyone help me identify this flower? It came from a butterfly mix (I think). The mature blossoms smell like vanilla and sugar, and I want to harvest the seeds and plant more, forever and forever and ever......I have never smelled anything like it. I actually want to EAT this plant!

Not sure my image is accessible here. Anyway, you can click on this link to see the picture. My neighbor says that it is "anise" and I say "Italian Parsley."

Found the answer - Queen's Anne Lace

I never knew Queen's Anne Lace smelled like vanilla, we have lots and lots around here and I never noticed--gonna have to go out and find some and take a big sniff!

Could it be a heliotrope-I always plants lots of them for the vanilla scent. They have small bunches of bright purple flowers and dark green leaves.
