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!

[Corion]: So Hyperboria is an envrypted, decentralized IPv6 mesh network. I'm interested and want to look how good coverage is in my area. But the API for querying Hyperboria is only reachable over Hyperboria itself. Thanks but no thanks.
