Small white flowers Annuals

Plant annual fragrant flowers where you can easily snip them for floral arrangements, or plant them near a window to let their scents waft to you. Remember that some flowers are more fragrant at night!By Deb Wiley

Everyone likes a beautiful bloom, but everyone loves a fragrant one! Happily, there's a wealth of easy-to-grow annuals that offer sweetly scented flowers you can include in your garden -- from light citrusy and floral scents to rich chocolate.

Here are some of the most fragrant annual flowers:

Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens) produces dense, flat clusters of deep purple, lavender, or white flowers that have a vanilla fragrance and deeply crinkled dark green leaves. called cherry pie plant because of the cherry undertones to the vanilla scent. Heliotrope is a tender perennial that can be grown outdoors all year in Zones 9-11. Grow in full sun but protect it with afternoon shade in the hot regions where it is perennial. In Zones 8 and colder, grow it as an annual.

Stock (Matthiola incana) and evening stock (Matthiola longipetala) may sound like soup bases, but they're clove-scented biennials -- plants that take two years to set seed and die -- that are often grown as annuals. The dense clusters of white, yellow, red, pink, or blue fragrant flowers are favorites for bouquets. Evening stock is more sprawling, with flowers with narrower petals that open in the evening. Grow in full sun to partial shade.

Virginia stock (Malcolmia maritima) has a similar common name, but the magenta, red, cream, or lavender four-petal blooms are larger -- about an inch wide -- growing in clusters on the ends of the stems. Grow in full sun.

Four o'clock (Mirabilis jalapa) earned its common name because its fragrant flowers open in late afternoon. A tender perennial hardy in Zones 9-11, but grown as an annual through most of North America, four o'clock's trumpet-shape blooms are red, pink, white, or yellow and sometimes striped. Grow it in full sun.


Flowers for southfacing

Well, no flowers really bloom all year round, except maybe sweet allyssum (small little white groundcover flowers, that you can use for pots, too). You could try a mixture of sun-loving annuals in pots and see what does well. That way, if something does not work, it's not like you've lost a lot of money. If something works out wel, you can buy more. Do you really get sun in SF? :-)


I've had good luck

In my north-facing containers with:
primula
variety of campanulas
fuchias
lobelia
shade loving penstemon
begonia
cascading:
bacopa (green w/small white flowers)
vinca minor (varigated leaves with pretty purple flowers)
nerembergia (purple or white papery flowers)
lamium (mostly for foliage)
some of these are annuals, but i've long since given up on having container flowers that last from year to year.
oddly enough, when i made the mental shift to just remove and replant when things poop out (as opposed to trying to keep things going indefinitely), i look forward to planting something new and the flowers seem to last much longer
