Fragrant Perennials
Abronia fragrans - SAND VERBENA
$2.00
Though seldom grown or offered, this is an indispensable plant for the evening or fragrance garden. If sown early it will bloom the first year, but is a hardy perennial to zone 5. It is a trailing plant to two feet across, which when established will bloom all summer diffusing its vanilla-like perfume through the evening garden from white flowers in verbena-like heads. Best to remove the seed from the little pod and give a month of chilling–plant in a sunny well-drained spot. Few seeds.

Achillea filipendulina - FERNLEAF YARROW
$2.00
A very serviceable and hardy plant that should be in every flower border and cutting garden. Displaying its yellow, flat-topped flowers in corymbs to four inches across, it will flower nearly all summer in rather poor, dry soil. The ferny, silvery foliage is quite attractive and possesses a pungent aroma somewhat like that of feverfew.

Achillea millefolium - MILFOIL YARROW
$2.00
“…pleasant for summer bouquets”. is how H. V. P. Wilson describes this pungently scented perennial herb which makes a good ground cover in poor dry soils. The specific name which means thousand-leaved refers to its feathery, finely divided foliage above which are borne the many flat clusters of white flowers from July to September. The most medicinally active of the Yarrows, it is also a mosquito repellent. Zone 2.
Fragrant Perennials
Acorus calamus - SWEET FLAG
$2.00
A plant with swordlike leaves to 2-3 feet which is excellent for the bog garden or marshy area, but will grow in ordinary garden soil as long as it doesn’t dry out. The flag-like leaves were once employed as a strewing herb in churches and the root, dried and candied, was a popular homemade confection several generations ago. Has a resinous aromatic scent.
Fragrant Perennials
Adenophora lilifolia - LILYLEAF LADYBELL
$2.00
Coming from Siberia, this is a very hardy plant (zone 2-3) with blue summer-blooming flowers similar to those of the Campanulas, that are borne in long spikes on plants of 2 to 3 feet. The flowers are lightly but sweetly scented, and the plants resent disturbance so should be located in their permanent position while young.

Agastache foeniculum - ANISE HYSSOP
$2.00
This is an interesting plant for the back of the border or for the wild garden. It has a strong aromatic smell like anise (children say Root Beer), dark hairy leaves and feathery spikes of blue flowers. Bees will work the flowers as long as there is light, and where there are large quantities of the plant, the honey produced has a most agreeable taste. Very attractive to butterflies also.
Fragrant Perennials
Agastache foeniculum ‘Album’ - WHITE ANISE HYSSOP
$2.00
The pure white flowered form of this wonderfully fragrant honey plant. Quite similar to the blue but for the flowers, slightly lighter green leaves and to my nose more minty and less anise scented foliage.

Agastache foeniculum aureum - GOLDEN ANISE HYSSOP
$2.50
Somewhat shorter than the species (growing to less than two feet) but nevertheless quite robust for such a golden-leaved plant. Also quite tolerant of full sun and average soil but would be good to brighten a somewhat shady corner, although the foliage color is not as pronounced there. Like the species, it blooms all summer and has a wonderful fragrance in its foliage and is very attractive to pollinators.

Agrimonia eupatoria - COMMON AGRIMONY
$2.00
Valued by our ancestors for its many herbal uses, this once common wayside plant possesses a fragrance like ripe apricots in its roots and the long spikes of small yellow flowers. The 2-3 foot plant has been used to produce a yellow dye. Zone 4.
Fragrant Perennials
Agrimonia odorata - SCENTED AGRIMONY
$2.00
Not a showy plant, but a stately one with its fern-like foliage and long, nodding spikes of yellow flowers. The leaves and flowers have a delicious resinous quality similar to that of the English Walnut’s leaves. Used medicinally and in stuffing pillows and pot-pourris.

Allium ramosum - SIBERIAN ONION
$2.00
Also known as A. odorum, this ‘flowering’ onion has a nice fragrance and its white ball-like flowers make a good showing in mid-border. Blooms in May and June, is fine for cutting fresh (and mature) and if so taken will bloom again in the fall.

Allium sativum - VARIEGATED SERPENT GARLIC
$2.50
There are so many varieties of garlic being offered these days, but here is a truly unique one-many of the leaves are striped or penciled in cream and white. This appeared in a patch of hardneck garlic that had gone "wild" and I have now increased it enough to offer. Plants will send up some sections that are all green and these can be pulled without disturbing the rest and be used for spring garlic. Serpent refers to the way the stems curl and then eventually straighten up-a most curious habit. Six bul
