Nothing brings in some goodness to life such as aromatic scents coming from a house garden. Better than any aerosol, plants are the natural way of giving you some of the most breathtaking sweet scents you could ever smell. However, some plants are better at this than others!
So, if you’re curious about which crops are the most fragrant or you want to begin transforming your garden, we have got a list for you. Here are the top 10 plants that will make your backyard sing with odor.
Jasmine: You see it in your favourite perfumes and deodorant, so why not bring it to your home garden? Jasmine fragrances are as sweet as they are long-lasting. You’ll just keep searching for excuses to remain in your garden! They say that the smell of the plant differs for each individual. Now, that’s interesting.
Lavender: it’s one of the most popular plants around the world grown because of its odor. Why? Well, it’s also the main ingredient in scented oils that promote calming and soothing sensations.
Gardenia: It’s wonderful when you have sweet smelling flowers, but it’s incredible when they don’t require much maintenance and bloom quite often. That’s exactly why the Gardenia is unique.
Hyacinth: These plants bloom in an assortment of colours like purple, pink, red and blue to name a few. Each color has its distinctive scent and will add a layer of sophistication to your garden. They are hardy and, occasionally, bloom 2-3 times in a year.
Scented Geranium: as opposed to only one plant, this is an entire family of plants that bloom with unique smelling flowers. You have the choice of over 200 varieties that can adorn and beautify your garden.
Eucalyptus: No, we are not referring to the fast-growing trees that need constant pruning. Instead, try the Eucalyptus shrubs that give off a subtle, sweet odor without taking a lot of your time or effort.
Sweet Bay: We consistently look to flowers as being the fragrant part but what if leaves can do just that, maybe even better? Sweet Bay leaves not only 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’t think of having a fragrant garden without a Rose. They are to flowers what diamonds are to gemstones, priceless and adored. A Rosebush can be the centre attraction of any fragrant garden.
