Bring your garden to another level with fragrant bushes and shrubs. When planning a garden, color and form are often top considerations, but fragrance adds to the garden experience. Many flowering shrubs are also very fragrant. Some of the best fragrant flowering shrubs and bushes are lilacs, mock orange, gardenia, Daphne, butterfly bushes, azaleas, and flowering cherry. When planted near walkways and entrances, fragrant bushes can provide a welcoming feel. When buying fragrant bushes and shrubs for sale online, make sure the variety will grow in your hardiness zone. Other factors to consider include the shrub's mature height and spread, light requirements (full sun, partial shade or full shade), bloom time, flower color and fragrance.
