One of the most fragrant flowers we grow, this stunning plant is a must-have for every gardener and is ideal for the mixed border. Flowering for many months, it fills the air with a sweet, jasmine-like scent. Showy white flowers open during the cool of the evening. Pollinators adore them, especially moths and butterflies. On our farm the hummingbirds even nest in the patch.
