About Flowers: Scent

If you enjoy fragrant flowers, these blooms are probably some of your favorites. From top to bottom: gardenia, rose, freesia, mix with oriental lilies, tuberose, and stock. The classic gardenia has a strong perfume-like scent. Of the roses, garden roses tend to be the most fragrant. Freesia has a soft, slightly spicy scent.  Stock is mild, while the oriental lilies and tuberose pack a strong room filling aroma. Not pictured: lilac, hyacinth, peonies, sweet peas, lavender are other fragrant seasonal choices.
