Perhaps the 'Alabama Crimson' honeysuckle is the most fragrant plant out there right now and is a hummingbird magnet. A hummer is there as I write this. I do like fragrant flowers and variegated plants. This shot was back in May and it's still going strong.

The chocolate mint smells so good it makes me hungry and the Mandevilla blooms are sweetly fragrant.

Oooohhhh, I want to get one of those sweet almond bushes!!!!

I did get a sweet Olive (Osmanthus fragrans) when Calloway Gardens had a plant sale this spring. Mine isn't blooming but my son's is and it smells ├čo good and you can smell it at a very far distance.

I really like the fragrant plants that you can smell from a distance. You smell them before you see them and the tantalizing fragrance makes you keep searching to see what it is.

Gardening keeps me connected to the
It's early Spring here, so quite a lot. My freesias, late jonquils and daffodils, Daphne Eternal Fragrance and Daphne genkwa (D. Odora is almost finished), Acacia (lots of them, many species), Grevillea White Wings is a mass of strongly honey-scented blooms, the Banksia Giant Candles if you put your nose in it, Sweet Osmanthus, the Viburnum Burkwoodii is still going, but Viburnum X Bodnantense Dawn is almost finished, and Lonicera fragrantissima is still trailing on and so are various Viola odora. Hyacinths have just finished.
