Scent is one of the strongest human senses, and fragrance gardens can add a new dimension to your landscape.
With thoughtful planning and design, it’s not hard to create a pleasant fragrance garden using the tangy scent of tea olive blooms, the heady perfume of gardenia flowers, or the resinous smell of pine needles.
Many edible plants, such as tomato, citrus, and herbs, have strong scents that can be incorporated into your fragrance garden.
Some plants release their fragrance with the heat of the sun, while others emit a scent only when crushed. Some plants, like moon vine, and angel’s trumpet, have a scent only at night.
