Landscape Design Idea IV - Fragrant Gardens

Hydrangea, Lavender & Roses

While most garden designs are meant to be visually striking, great designs consider other senses such as scent. Fragrance, the sense that evokes memory more than any other, is easy to integrate into a landscape design. Some plants, such as roses, “Korean spice” viburnum and the native shrub summer sweet, produce fragrant flowers. Other plants have fragrant foliage, such as the herbs lavender, mint and thyme.
