Garden Description

In addition to its sweetly perfumed blossomsılilies, dianthus, phlox, nicotiana, and othersıthis garden includes plants such as Russian sage and catmint, whose aromatic foliage releases scent only when touched. A succession of fragrances spans the growing season, from irises and candytuft in spring to sweet autumn clematis. Three 4-foot-wide trellises are optional; they accommodate vining plants and serve as backdrop. This garden could be placed next to a patio, against a fence, at the side of the house, or along a property line. Make sure thereıs a comfortable chair nearby, where you can take in the intoxicating aromas. These perennials, annuals, and vines will bloom best in a sunny exposure.
