Selecting favorite garden memory

Scent is tied to many memories. After all, smell, emotion, and memories are closely linked, due to the brain’s anatomy. And while choosing plants based on color scheme or texture may be at the forefront of your mind when plant shopping, selecting deliciously fragrant plants adds a whole new dimension to your garden design.

When selecting plants for a fragrance garden, you’ll find spectacularly scented shrubs, perennials, bulbs, annuals, and—of course—herbs. Before you begin shopping, take a moment to plan your garden, choosing fragrant plants that bloom at different times throughout the year for a succession of scent through the seasons. You’ll enjoy sweet scents all season long with a little planning.
