Aromatic plants for your patio

By Amy Patterson

Summer is quickly approaching which means we’ll all be spending a lot more time outside enjoying the elongated days and warm nights. But how can you make your yard or patio more enjoyable? Well, adding fun features like a tree bench to your yard can help, but what about boosting the scent of your outside space?Aromatic_plants-01

We’ve compiled a list of super aromatic and gorgeous plants that you can utilize on your patio – and the best part is – they’re all super durable and forgiving to those of us who weren’t necessarily born with a green thumb.

Honeysuckle – this one is by far my favorite…these little plants have a scent that is simply divine, and if you’ve never tasted the nectar inside, you’re in for a treat

Lilacs – Lilacs have a light and airy scent that perfectly pairs with summer

Lavender – a well-known calming scent

Jasmine – another calming scent, while similar to lavender, this has a much stronger scent

Mint – this is a multipurpose one…not only does it smell amazing, but you can actually break off the leaves and use them to cook with
