Dear Roy:
          This is one of the many Brazilian species so little known. It is a
forest plant. Incidentally it is A. caryophyllacea. In zones 10-12 it is
evergreen and makes a very fine dwarf ground cover. Its name makes reference
to the carnation scent. Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing it with us. Your
reference to the hybrids in Japan is very interesting. I had no idea that
the Japanese had been stealing genetic material in Brazil too.
Kind regards
