Sweet Almond Verbena (Aloysia virgata) may not make the world's most beautiful bouquet but it could very well be a champion in the scent category.  This arrangement fills my whole house with the most amazing sweet almond fragrance.  The bush lives outside by my back door and grows to about eight feet each season.  It dies back in my zone but returns to its full magnificence, in a flash!

Sounds like just the sort of plant I like Donald. Wonder if we can grow it in the UK?

I've heard about this plant but never seen one posted. I'll be hunting for it now since I have another gardening friend that swears it's the most heavenly fragrance in the garden.
