Top radical is 'plants'. The rest of this character is a Non-General Use character meaning '(fragrant) smoke', which acts phonetically to express 'fragrant', and lends its semantic meaning as well. It is composed of 'heavy' (重) and one of the radical forms of 'fire'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Burning plants produce heavy fragrance.'
