First, along the driveway, still blooming, Narcissus 'Grand Soleil d'Or', the yellow paperwhite. What a nice long bloom period!
Walking toward the house the next fragrant (though only slightly) is my yellow crocus, Crocus chrysanthus 'Advance'. None of my other crocuses have bloomed, yet.
My poor little Hyacinths are still holding on, some have been eaten from below, so I enjoy the ones remaining. Hyacinth 'Jan Bos'
As we head past the house and walk toward the backyard, the fragrance of the Edgeworthia is heavy on the breeze. This is the prime time for Edgeworthia chrysantha. You can smell the scent from up on the deck all the way down to the water. How many of you have purchased an Edgeworthia this year?? My work here is done.
A new plant to add to the list of the fragrant blooms is Daphne genkwa, Lilac daphne. I read a number of reports that this pretty little shrub is slightly fragrant, though, I don't get any fragrance from it. I will include it in my monthly post, but can't vouch for its scent.
This is an unknown Narcissus from a multi-pack of daffodils. It has a slight fragrance and really not very appealing. I can't wait for some of my really fragrant daffodils to bloom.
Coming back around the house and heading back toward the front, I have a number of Viburnum tinus compacta 'Spring Bouquet'. This pretty bloom's fragrance is fleeting. I remember last year finally getting a chance to experience the fragrance. Some plants give off more fragrance at certain times during the day. Maybe I miss this one more than I catch its scent.
In the front yard by the shed is one of the Daphne odora aureomarginata, Winter daphne. It has a lemony fragrance, another great winter fragrance that keeps on blooming. So glad both my Winter daphne are doing well.
Finally, Osmanthus fragrans, Tea Olive, is still blooming and super fragrant. This evergreen shrub blooms from late summer through fall and winter into early spring. I have eight of them around my garden. They can reach heights of 20 feet or more. Imagine a shrub that size full of blooms -- heavenly!!
What do you have fragrant in your garden?
