The Sweetest Smelling Flowers For Your Landscape

Grown best in full sun and zones 8 – 11, the Aloysia Virgata is also known as Sweet Almond Verbena or Sweet Almond Bush. It’s native to Argentina and other warmer climates though it can do okay in some less ideal conditions. Aloysia Virgata is even a drought tolerant plant that doesn’t need a lot of watering from you.

The Sweet Almond Verbena, produces beautiful white blooms throughout spring, summer and fall that bloom best in full sun. While the pollen can cause allergic reactions, the Sweet Almond Bush is generally a safe plant that will provide you with not only the flowers but also bees, butterflies, and birds to watch.

If you’re looking for something that works well indoors or outdoors, this is a great option. Whether as a houseplant or as a hedge in your yard, the Sweet Almond Verbena is an ornamental option that can grow as tall as 15 feet.The best part about the Aloysia Virgata is the beautiful, sweet scent of the flowers they bloom. The Sweet Almond Bush is very low maintenance and will grow back after the winter months as the weather gets warmer again.

The Sweet Almond Verbena requires average water during its first year of growth but once established it can be quite drought tolerant.

    My 5-year-old Sweet Almond Verbena fell victim to a cold snap this April and I was heartbroken to find I couldn’t get a replacement from my normal supplier. I’m so happy I found you guys – not only is the plant I received the best quality I’ve ever experienced from an online supplier – It compares with the quality of plants I buy from my local nursery – and I am pretty picky! Seeing an actual photo of my plant before they shipped it was an amazing touch of customer service and attention to detail. You guys really rock and I will check with you first ANY TIME I need to buy something online… and then some. My plant was in amazing condition and was specifically chosen based on my order request. I feel like they truly cared with their responsive approach and quality of the product I received. Love you guys… congrats on doing such a great job! I’m thoroughly impressed and am now a BIG FAN from Boston!!

Why others chose this plant.

the fragrance is unbelievable

Honeybees love this plant. First experienced Sweet Almond Verbena at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum - they have a large one growing in the Barabara Bush Garden, and it smeels so good. You can smell its sweetness through the trees.

The fragrance plus color (Butterflies like the plant.)

Good for butterflies

the most amazing fragrance you'll ever experience on your deck!

I had one at previous residence, smells amazing!
