4 Fragrant August Bloomers for your pottery

There are so many wonderful plants materials to consider when trying to decide what to plant in your garden pottery.  We love a plant that is not only beautiful but FRAGRANT!  Here are a few suggestions.

Excellent in bouquests, it grows outdoors in all kinds of garden containers and should be able to move into a protected spot in winter months.  An exception to this rule is if planted in a mild climate like Southern California or Arizona.   To play up it's blossoms, plant in a dark green or chocolate brown glazed pot.   The contrast will be stunning!

Gardenia
White, silky petaled blossoms have an unforgettable fragrance.   To scent a patio, plant a compact form such as 'Veitchii', "Radicans', or 'White Gem' in a decorative and oversized container.  In mild climates, plant several in a sunny bed to form a low hedge.  If you have never smelled this fragrance you are truly missing out!

Plumeria
Look for varieties such as 'Hawaiian Yellow' at local garden nurseries.  Everywhere except Hawaii, plant singly in large, light-weight containers to display on a sunny patio or garden area.  Light afternoon shade in hottest inland areas is best.  Move indoors for winter.  Not only delicate and lovely but the fragrance is completely memorable.

Tuberose
Creamy white blossoms are strung into leis in Hawaii.  Following a long season of heat, flower stems rise above grass like foliage.  Nurseries sell blooming plants in gallon containers all summer, so you should be able to find them locally where ever you are.  Mass several in a large container.  Use plain terracotta for a traditional, classic look or go with a hot color in poly resin and make a bold statement.
 
Give one of these bold, fragrant blooms a try and tell us how you liked them!
