Hmm, how odd! It ran without complaint or error at work; when I try it at home now, I get the same error as you (which is documented as being correct behaviour!).

I'll have to try again at work tomorrow! ;-)

    Of course, we can always put the flower in a vase:

    use utf8;
    no strict 'refs';
    ${"✿"} = "works for me?";
    say ${"✿"}

      Well, I think this solution would please everyone, OP included!

      Turns out I was just plain mistaken (though I did find your findings on this topic while Googling/searching PM); I had used a different character (that I knew the UTF-8 byte sequence for) to test with at work, which happened to actually work, but BLACK FLORETTE does not!
