It's getting harder and harder to find flowers with great fragrance. What plants fill your garden with perfumer? Is it an old fashioned rose or maybe a heady lavender? It seems like so many scented flowers are spring beauties, like lilac, mock orange, peonies and sweet peas, that are gone before your get your fill. What are your favorite fragrant flowers to grow? Recommend a Scented Plant
FourO'clocks smell oh so good at night
- I love the smell that floats off the mounds of Four O'clock flower, when sitting out at night love how the breeze carries the gentle fragrance through the air.

Favorite scented flower
- Lily of the Valley. Think I like that scent more than the Lilac. Hyacinths start the spring fragrances though. Love those.
and the Jasmine(which I can't grow) is heavenly.
Sweet Smelling Plants
- Gardenias, Night Blooming Jasmine and last but not least, the Confederate Jasmine! Planted those in close proximity! WOW!!!!

Sarccoca (Sweet Box)
- Sarccoca both varieties but rustifolia best. The most wonderful surprise on a winter day, the sweet ,haunting fragrance filling the air around my deck.
Ahh, the scent of flowers...
- ANY Bourbon rose, Rugosas, some Hybrid Teas - the Llilac. Don't leave out Sweet Peas, Mock Orange Shrubs and the single delight of Honeysuckles. Plant them all!

- None has mentioned the moon flower. It is heavenly. A vine that finally blooms in Aug. Flowers are huge but only last a day or two. The vine is full and the scent reminds me of gardenias.

North Carolina Spice Bush
- My favorite above all is probably the North Carolina Spice bush. When it blooms my whole yard smells of something akin to Juicy Fruit Gum.
