PLANTS WITH AROMATIC FOLIAGE

CATEGORIES:  Annuals & Perennials  |  Shrubs & Climber |  Trees

Many herbs, both culinary and medicinal have aromatic leaves. Other ornamental garden plants have foliage with their own distinctive fragrance, some pleasant others not so. They all have a place in the garden, especially close to the home where the leaves can be touched and trampled to appreciate the aromatic properties.
