Does anyone know what this is?
Vanilla leaf, Achlys triphylla?
Yes, it's a Vanilla Leaf. Thank you.
I did notice it had a pleasant smell, but they say it should really only come when the leaf is dry.
My recollection is that the vanilla aroma becomes much stronger as the foliage begins to die back for the season. Another common name of the plant is sweet-after-death.
