Lamb's Ears

Flowering Tobacco

If you’re looking for a sweet fragrance in the garden that’s strong enough to be noticed — but doesn’t hit you over the head the way a gardenia or a lily might — consider growing flowering tobacco, or Nicotiana, an annual in most U.S. locales. The plant is tall (5 ft.), sturdy, easy to grow from seed and especially beautiful at dusk, when its white tubular blooms seem to glow like stars.

Artemisia

Artemisia has feathery silver foliage that is aromatic and soft to the touch. Also called 'Powis Castle', it makes a beautiful backdrop to pastel flora."
