Fragrant plants hardy in the front range.

Live in Boulder, CO where it's fairly dry, hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Love fragrant plants but trying to figure out what I could plant this year. Seems like the lilium regale and Lonicera fragrantissima would do ok here. Any others that can survive? Drought tolerant xeriscape type plants preferred but others aren't out of the question. Thanks!

Speaking of fragrant clematis I want to try Clematis ‘Sweet Summer Love’.

Here is a link that might be useful: Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love'

Me too, Robert. It would be nice to plant both together and get fragrant flowers summer and fall. But I did see its hardy zone from the article.

That would be great. Says it's hardy to zone 4 it looks like. Thanks!

How about Star or Confederate Jasmine? It's evergreen and drought tolerant.

nobueno, thanks for the link too. Boy, it costs $25 a piece... very expensive. I will wait till its price goes down.

Abelia mosanensis is zone 5 hardy and has fragrant flowers.
I would recommend Summer Sweet also , but it is not drought tolerance. There are some fragrant roses that are cold hardy in zone 5. I am not really into roses, so I can't recommend any specific name, but you can check out the rose forum and get some recommendation there.

I have Korean Spice Viburnum and I like its scent .

Viburnum carlesii (Koreanspice viburnum) is an excellent choice as are its hybrids V. x juddii, V. x burkwoodii and V. x carlcephalum. :)
