Here our hardy plant expert gives his pick of some wonderfully scented shrubs that will fill your garden with fragrance throughout the year.
Syringa vulgaris ‘Sensation’
This glorious scented lilac has beautiful magenta and white flowers in late spring.
The fragrant Abelia is a little known shrub but makes an outstanding compact garden plant. Loved by bees and really easy to grow.
The silver leaved Pineapple Broom loves a sunny sheltered location. Its yellow flowers have a fresh pineapple scent.
This deciduous Rhododendron has sweetly fragrant golden yellow flowers in spring.
Philadelphus ‘Manteau d’Hermine’
Deliciously scented double white flowers in summer make this compact form of Mock Orange a must-have plant.
Arguably the most popular of all the English lavenders, with strongly scented foliage and fowers. We have some really good larger plants available to make an instant impact this summer.
Viburnum carlesii ‘Aurora’
This beautiful pink blushed semi-evergreen Viburnum is a wonderfully fragrant back of the border shrub.
