These lists of sweet-smelling plants can help you create your own sweet memories.

Fragrant Plants

I’ve categorized these plants by scent, but as you know, it’s hard to describe odors, so some are merely filed under “sweet.” In actuality, most fragrances are quite complex. Also, cultivars of roses, lilies, irises and a few others span several scent groups.

Be aware that fragrance affects each of us personally — and not just because of our past experiences. For example, some people swoon over sweet alyssum’s perfume while others hold their noses. So while I say a flower smells great, you might not agree. Also, breeding has removed the scent from many species. You may need to sniff around to find the right cultivar to perfume your garden.
