Clue

I couldn't say, as my ancient joints prevented me from getting close to it.

flower tuned downwards

The rays of the flower are tuned downwards in Scented Mayweed, so if they are were all downward pointing then I would say it’s Scented (but then the odd one in Scentless Mayweed can be downwards as well).

Flower turned downwards

All the flowers on this one plant had the rays turned downwards. That is what alerted me to it.
