Fragrant Plants Throughout the Season


Daxin has been growing fragrant plants on trials for over 20 years and incorporates many of his favorites into his garden designs. He is in demand as a speaker about Magnolias, plants of China as well as fragrant plants..



Fragrant plants have always been essential in expanding the sensory charm of gardens. In our benign climate we are blessed with a large palette of fragrant plants.


  Daxin will share some less common ones that can perfume our gardens year-round.
  Help Keep WHS Strong! Volunteers wanted for these positions for 2017.
