4Flowers don’t have only the beautiful color to enjoy your garden but also the sweet fragrance.  If you’ve the scented flowers in your garden, you will get also the good scent and beautiful scene at the same time.

1.  SWEET PEA

Supreme in fragrance and cut flower value, sweet pea blossoms can flood a balcony with their perfume. Sweet peas offer one of the widest color ranges in the plant kingdom, and include the various colors such as navy blues, pastel lavenders, pinks and the purest whites. Each variety and each color has a slightly different scent.  The ruffled blossoms look like little butterflies all aflutter. Most sweet peas are climbers, but dwarf bush types are available and more appropriate for most containers.

2. MAGNOLIA

Magnolias grow best in full sun, at least half a day minimum. These trees tend to get leggy and lose their lower branches if they get too much shade.  Flower production suffers also.

The Magnolia flowers may be white, pink or purple. Magnolia flowers size ranges from 3-12 inch in diameter.  When planting magnolias dig in as much compost as possible and work the soil in an area twice the diameter of the root ball of the plant.

3. LILAC

Lilac is one of top favorite scented flower among many people due to its strong perfume and sweet color.  Lilac plants can be tiny shrubs or small-sized trees. Branches covered in dense blossoms are sometimes sold as cut flowers in late spring, but the four-pointed flowers wilt quickly.  Lilacs need to experience full sunlight at least six hours daily.

Lilac bush can shade itself. If it becomes overgrown and dense, you may find that a few flowers will only appear around the edges

4. ROSE

It’s known that rose is queen of flower.  It’s the symbol of love as it has the gorgeous various color and sweet fragrance.  But not every type of rose has the strong perfume.  It depends on each rose species.
