Fabulous Fragrance in the Garden

Fragrant flowers and aromatic foliage add to our garden enjoyment by giving us pleasure as we take in the wonderful fragrances they produce. The primary purpose of scent in flowers is to attract pollinators (usually insects) for fertilization. Biology aside, we just love breathing in the richly fragrant air that tells us the citrus trees, jasmines, gardenias, etc. are blooming. Place a fragrant plant near a lanai, patio or walkway and it will be a reminder to stop and "take time to smell the roses".
