Overview

Color, leaf, and texture tend to dominate gardeners’ criteria when it comes to plant selection. But in the garden, floral scent is often the most powerfully sensual experience. In this book, expert gardener Ann Lovejoy recommends and describes over 300 scented flowers that will provide fragrant beauty throughout the year.

Here are profiles of longtime garden favorites such as roses and magnolia, as well as forgotten charmers like night phlox and the intoxicating datura. The descriptions include expert cultivation tips to attain the best results.
