Fragrant Flowers in the garden (Stop and smell the roses, and the agave, and the hosta, and the ... )

Fragrant Flowers are an often overlooked (or undersmelled) feature of the garden. But planting a garden full of fragrant flowers delights the nose, both day and night. The royal families of India and Persia knew this and designed night gardens near their palace balconies with fragrant flowers that would perfume the night air with sensual odors.

Plant Delights Nursery has a large number of the most fragrant flowers for you to choose from. Some of our favorite fragrant plants include: Agave which smells like French fries, the sweetly fragrant white flowers of Aloysia, Berlandiera which smells like milk chocolate, Dianthus which smells like cloves, Edgeworthia with a wonderful sweet fragrance at the end of winter, Jasminum the flower used by the moghuls of India in their scented gardens, Verbesina which smells just like Tootsie Rolls, and the honeysuckle scented Hedychium. For those with sensitive noses, some fragrances may be overwhelming, but there are plenty of plants like Tiarella, with softly fragrant flowers.
