There are many plants that thrive in cold weather, and some of them even emit a lovely fragrance. Winter fragrance plants are a great way to bring some life and cheer to your garden during the colder months. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the top 5 plants for winter fragrance.

1. Winter Honeysuckle

One of the most popular winter fragrance plants is the winter honeysuckle. This plant starts to bloom in November and continues through March.

The creamy white flowers emit a sweet, citrusy fragrance that can fill an entire garden. Winter honeysuckle is also a great addition to a wildlife garden as it attracts butterflies and birds.

2. Viburnum

Viburnum is another popular winter fragrance plant that blooms in late winter. The sweet fragrance of viburnum can be enjoyed from several feet away and is commonly described as spicy with hints of vanilla and clove.

With over 150 different species to choose from, you’re sure to find one that fits your personal preference and garden needs.

3. Winter Jasmine

Winter jasmine is a beautiful and easy-to-grow plant that blooms in winter or early spring. Its bright-yellow flowers add a pop of colour to the winter garden, and their sweet fragrance is reminiscent of tropical fruits.

Winter jasmine is also very low maintenance, making it a great choice for gardening beginners.

4. Daphne

Daphne is a small, shrubby plant that blooms in late winter to early spring. Despite its small size, daphne packs a powerful punch with its sweet, heady fragrance. The scent is similar to violets and can permeate an entire garden.

Daphne thrives in cool climates, making it a great choice for the winter garden.

5. Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is a flowering shrub that blooms in the winter and early spring. Its delicate spidery flowers come in shades of yellow, orange, and red and give off a subtle, sweet fragrance.
