5 Aromatic Plants That Will Beautify Your Garden

One of the reasons we love Choisya is not just how sturdy and resilient it is. But also due to the heavenly aroma it sends into the surrounding air.

I guess we all know that Choisya is not the only aromatic plant that gardeners can nurture at home.

Here are some of the other top picks.

1) Lavender

The visual impact alone that lavender can create in the front yard can be reason enough for many homeowners plant some of them at home.

Violet petal ignite the feeling of passion in people.

Even better, it is also enhance by an enchanting scent so mesmerized by the masses that lavender is often the essential oil of choice of spas and health centers.

However, gardening enthusiasts should note that lavender is one big bee attractor.

2) Rose

Another flowering plant that triggers passion.

How can anybody not like the beauty of roses… unless they have bad memories of being given one from a lousy ex-boyfriend.

The scent of rose is so calming that I have it in body wash and hand soap.

Other than that, you save yourself from paying for overpriced roses on Valentines day.

3) German chamomile

There’s a reason why chamomile is one of the handful of all time tea flavors.

It simply is a delightfully scented plant.

If you love chamomile tea, why not make it’s charming aroma a permanent fixture in the back yard.

What many people don’t know is that it’s actually a flowering plant too. And the flowers look like cheerful miniature sunflowers when in bloom.

4) Jasmine

Jasmine is another widely appealing scent that is incorporated into all types of personal care products.

Some of which include:

  • Body Lotions
  • Skin moisturizers
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo
  • etc

They are also commonly used by building for landscaping due to the beautiful white flowers they produce.

5) Lilacs

Another plant that looks as pleasantly sweet as it smells is lilacs.

They are available in the form of shrubs and trees.

Color-wise, they resemble a little like lavender… but more stunning.

However, when purchasing lilacs do ask the merchant whether it’s a variety with scent because most species of lilacs are odorless.

Finally, it is not recommended to have too many aromatic plants in the garden, especially if it not of a considerable size.

While a single type of scent can be wonderfully satisfying, a mixture of many strong scents can create an odd atmosphere.

So be mindful not to go overboard with scented plants.
