Night-blooming Throgni is a fragrant Klingon flower. "Worf found the smell of a Quazulu VIII virus similar to the Throgni." (STE 219) [TNG "Angel One"])

When a Klingon landing party returned from an unnamed planet after being infected with a lethal silicon-based virus, their captain destroyed their shuttlecraft in orbit rather than let them board and infect the mother ship. (ENT "Observer Effect")
