It is a year since the last post during which we nave had enough time to evaluate the plants favoured by the members. Here is my final choice Fragrant white Plumeria with round tip leaves
Longest bloom period, one of the best perfumes and trouble free
Second is Motia, Fairly long blooming period, profuse blooming Perfume second to none, flowers plucked in the evening kept in a dish with some water keeps the house Spring Fresh till next evening,
Rat ki Ranni (dassi fragrant) 2-3 plants scattered around the house, when in bloom you can’t resist to stay out in the lawn in the evening. Marwa is next to Rat ki Ranni Brunfelsia For beauty and perfume You cant ignore.
Gardenia Beautiful flower with heavenly perfume, Only if the blooming period was a little longer and had more blooms
Great list everyone. My favorites, though many, has to be the ones I grew up with. For purely nostalgic reasons of course I grew up in Quetta and the scent of wild lavender and honeysuckle are very close to my heart. I also love the scent of maple trees. Plz can anyone tell me if they too can detect the heavy sweet scent of maple trees? I have asked quite a few ppl, and they deny smelling anything, but I know a maple tree is coming by just by the scent of it. Even if I'm driving around in car. It's very strong and sweet. So my list would be: 1: lavender 2: honeysuckle 3: either juniper or maple trees. Can't make up my mind. OFF TOPIC: I have a sad little story to share, I hope you don't mind. The Markers ( of marker pharmaceuticals) were good family friends. I've heard their garden had lavender growing in abundance a long time back. They used to extract pure lavender oil for medicinal purpose. Sadly, I haven't seen their famous botanical garden in its glory days. It's heartbreaking to see such a beautiful garden in ruins now. Their garden is also famous for its boot house, which was built in 1800s by Ardisher marker for his children. It still remains standing amongst the long gone garden near saryab road Quetta.
