Perennials for Fragrant Gardens -Pollyannâ€™s- Growing perennials can be visually stimulating - not to mention full of satisfaction - for any successful gardener or landscaper. But what about a perennial garden that is stimulating enough to invite people to step up close to admire your work? Example: I planted a perennial bed for a client, one Fall, and in the Spring the neighbors wandered through the garden and many came to the door to ask what flowers were planted. The Perennial Fragrance Garden I had planted filled the entire neighborhood with the fragrance of cloves. This is not to say all Perennial Fragrance Gardens would be strong enough to beckon people in the neighborhood, but fragrance can be a major ingredient when choosing perennials. A bouquet, freshly cut, could fill a room with an inviting scent. Walking through a perennial fragrance garden and brushing the leaves of plants can fill your senses with aromatic pleasure. Fragrant perennials are just another part of the artistic experience of gardening. As an experienced landscaper (I am a Master Gardener and have 2 University degrees in Fine Art), I design gardens and research perennials that can provide visual impact to satisfy my clients from year to year. You can do it, too, with my help. I have developed this application to provide my expertise for plant choices, whether for size, color or fragrance. Over 20 years of research, planting, monitoring and risk taking with perennials became my obsession. During those years, I became quite frustrated at nurseries when the clerks had less knowledge than I so I wanted to implement a method of having the information â€œIN MY HANDâ€ to get what I needed. This is the information and now it can go with anyone to find plants for a Perennial Fragrance Garden. Plants were chosen for their aesthetic qualities as well as their individual strengths and placed in this format: Name (botanical and common) Zone (temperature requirements) Bloom time (length, duration of bloom or time that flowers are visible) Height (inches and centimeters) Bloom size (I find this very important and rarely noted on nursery tags) Planting Space (amount of space in the garden) Soil (requirements for best growth) Sun (how much sun) Bloom duration (yes, the length of blooming is important to any garden) Habit (how the plant acts in itâ€™s own space) Use (bouquets, fragrance, border plants, middle ground or background, foliage) Recommended (plants that would stand out) Companion plants (complimentary plants for color, size or season) Pronunciation guide (how to say the name) Deadhead (how to or whether to snip off spent blooms) Cutback (techniques for caring for the plant) Propagation method (how to get the plant to reproduce) Pest (what I know about bugs) Disease (what I know about afflictions) Ecology notes (special interest about the plant, TOXICITY) Gardenerâ€™s tip (something I think may be useful) Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Without clawing through hundreds of plant books (I have already done that) or reading online text for hours (hundreds of hours) you can choose perennial plants. This format should make it easy to take straight to any nursery (on foot or online) and ask, show or look for the correct perennial plant(s). 20 years of shopping, researching, and growing perennials are formatted for gardeners and landscapers to ease the frustration of â€œnot knowingâ€. Explore the varieties and colors. Smell the fragrance. Get the right size. And end the drama. Are you ready to plant? Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Peace, Pollyann
