Ideas for fragrant flowering bushes/trees
Zone 5 in southern NH.
The plot is a former garden with largely Full Sun, now getting overgrown (eg blackberry bushes, tree seedlings), but still has a few azaleas and rhododendron bushes doing well. The plot is roughly triangular, maybe 40 feet or so on a side.
Looking for ideas for hardy, fragrant, flowering bushes.
Lilacs fit the bill quite nicely, and I will be planting a variety of lilac cultivars in this plot, but I wanted to diversify a bit.
My preference are bushes/shrubs/ornamental trees (as opposed to annual or perennial flowers).
Height not a problem, I can pick a spot depending on their expected mature size.
Would especially like something that goes into flower after the lilacs lose their bloom in the late spring , or summer, or fall.
I am looking for something that doesn't require a lot of care, but quite frankly am willing to try anything once.
