Jasmine fragrances are as sweet as they are long-lasting. You’ll just keep searching for excuses to stay in your garden!
Sweetshrub: Named after the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, this plant’s name says it all. It is said that the smell of the plant differs for each person. Now, that is interesting.
Lavender: It is one of the most popular plants around the world grown because of its smell. Why? Well, it is also the main ingredient in botanical oils which promote calming and soothing sensations.
Gardenia: It’s wonderful when you have sweet smelling flowers, but it’s amazing when they don’t require much maintenance and bloom quite often. That is exactly why the Gardenia is special.
Hyacinth: These plants bloom in a variety of colors like purple, pink, red and blue to name a few. Each colour has its distinctive odor and will add a layer of complexity to your garden.
Lilac: Not often seen around in gardens despite being called the queen of fragrant flowers, the Lilac could be what sets your garden apart. They are hardy and, occasionally, blossom 2-3 times annually.
Scented Geranium: Rather than only one plant, this is an entire family of plants that blossom with unique smelling flowers. You have the option of over 200 types that can adorn and beautify your garden.
Eucalyptus: No, we are not referring to the fast-growing trees that need constant pruning. Rather, try the Eucalyptus footprints which give off a subtle, sweet scent without taking a lot of your time or effort.
Sweet Bay: We always look to flowers as being the fragrant part but what if leaves can do just that, maybe even better? Sweet Bay leaves not just add a great aroma to your garden but can also be used to add interesting flavours to your cooking!
Rose: Saving the best for last, you can not think of owning a fragrant garden without a Rose. They are to blossoms what diamonds are to gemstones, priceless and loved. A Rosebush can be the center attraction of any fragrant garden.
