Sweet Fragrance in the Garden

My Shirley Temple Peonies just opened their snow white blooms and my first instinct was to lean down and take a breath of their intoxicating scent. The sweet fragrance of blooms adds a lovely sensory element to your garden bursting in color. Scatter fragrant perennials and spring bulbs throughout your garden to enjoy the wonderful, sweet scent all season – Both outside in your garden and brought inside for beautiful, sweet-smelling bouquets.

The Sensory Garden: Smell, Touch, Look and Listen

Sensory Gardens are created to help relax, stimulate, and teach. They are planted for all populations – those with disabilities, children, patients in a hospital, and the general public. The idea behind the Sensory Garden is to combine elements that will stimulate all of the senses – fragrant plants, textured plants, vivid colors, and the element of sound. Combined, when one walks through the garden, they can experience the joy and relaxation from the plants with every aspect of the brain.

Think Spring: Butterfly Bushes

Butterfly Bushes emit a sweet fragrance that isn’t just heavenly for our noses, but attracts beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. We planted one right outside our window at American Meadows and were amazed at the multitude of wildlife that it brought for us to enjoy.

Lavender: A Treat for the Senses

Who doesn’t love the fresh, comforting scent of lavender? Either freshly picked from the garden, or dried to make potpourri, lavender is a wonderful flower that is extremely easy to grow. Whether you have an expansive garden, or are gardening in containers on your balcony, most can grow lavender for heavenly fragrance in the summer months.
