Four Unique Plants for Unique Fragrance
Honey, Vanilla, Night-Blooming Sweet, and Grape Hubba Bubba

These four unique fragrant plants are available now at Phoenix.

Honey

Hydrangea angustipetala Golden Crane 'MonLongShou' - Hydrangea - Hydrangea 'Golden Crane' has large, fragrant lacecaps of white sterile florets around gold to chartreuse lacey reproductive florets. This cultivar is the earliest of hydrangea to bloom and smells sweetly of honey which will fill the entire garden. Narrow textured leaves complete the show on this handsome shrub. Introduced by Dan Hinkley from his collections from southern Sichuan, China.

Vanilla

Clematis recta 'Purpurea' - Purple-Leaved Clematis - This uncommon clematis is a non-climbing clump former that is grown primarily for its beautiful leaves and stems which are at first rich burgundy gradually maturing to a grey-green. The flowers are white, vanilla-scented and quite small but appear in nice clusters by the hundreds. This is a good clematis to grow in the perennial border up through other perennials or shrubs. Cut back after blooming for a new flush of burgundy foliage.

Night-Blooming Sweet

Zaluzianskya ovata - Night Phlox - This intriguing little South African native forms mounds of fuzzy leaves that produce deep pink buds opening to charming, white, fragrant flowers. During the days the flowers put forth a strange fragrance but at night they increase their olfactory output becoming a sweet, heady fragrance. Hardier in leaner, thinner soils.

Grape Hubba Bubba

Polemonium caeruleum 'Bressingham Purple' - Jacob's Ladder - Polemonium 'Bressingham Purple' is a beautiful Jacob's ladder with smokey purple foliage topped with purple flowers that smell like grape Hubba Bubba bubblegum! Nothing takes you back to your childhood like the smell of bubblegum. Sun to part-shade.
