Listing of most violently fragrant plants - opinions wanted

16 years ago

I've been working on compiling a list of the most violently fragrant plants (perennials, vines, shrubs, and trees). These are all confirmed to grow in Vance County, North Carolina (zone 7a, 7b, or 8a, depending on who you ask).

I intend to plant all these in my yard, as my salary and time afford.

Opinions are always appreciated.
