Description

Steeped in fruity, sweet, floral fresh notes, this glorious combination of fragrant plants will provide colour and perfume from spring to autumn. First comes the lily-of-the-valley and spring-flowering phlox divaricata. They hand the perfume baton to the dianthus and nemesia, and then on they pass it to the late summer flowering phlox and actaea. These not only all smell glorious, they are beautiful and fit well together too.
