Which kind of lavender to plant as a hedge next to a row of iceberg white rose hedges? Also best climbing rose for an 12 foot arbor. Which is easiest, another choice for fragrance? Color not as important. THANKS

Some of the best lavenders for your region include Royal Purple ( a gorgeous lavender and a vigorous producer.) Great for use as a hedge plant; New growth produces a striking silver-grey tinge with bright violet blooms. Very fragrant.

Betty?s Blue - introduced by Nichols Garden Nursery in Albany Oregon . A compact, erect plant with straight short spikes. Blooms are dark violet.

Croxton?s Wild - a robust, well-shaped bush with light blue, almost silvery pale blooms with pleasing fragrance.

Fragrant climbers include New Dawn (pale pink), Don Juan (red), and Golden Showers (yellow).

Enjoy your fragrant garden!
