There's a special allure to a garden that's heady with fragrance. If you want to boost the sweet scents in your garden spaces, use one of our free garden plans. Roses are an old reliable for fragrance; we have 17 garden plans that make these beloved flowers the centerpiece of your creation. Roses are also a great way to accent decorative garden elements, such as arbors and pergolas; use our combination of reliable perennials and roses for a dramatic addition to your yard. Check out other ways to combine fragrant roses and perennials -- for formal gardens, try our circular garden, which maxes out bloom time and flower fragrance. Summer is certainly prime time for a fragrant garden, but spring has its own aromatic beauty, including our collection of spring bulbs, flowering dogwood, rhododendron, and annual stock. Many flowers release their best scents when lightly touched; our Fragrant Garden suggestions will add sweet fragrance with blossoms and foliage. To combine all types of plants for a fragrant garden, consider our plan that uses annuals and shrubs, hardy herbs, scented-leaf geraniums, roses, and sweet peas, to name just a few.
