Sweetshrub – No Fragrance
Q: My sweetshrub’s flowers have absolutely NO scent! What’s wrong with it?
A: Join the club! I’ve never smelled one with an appreciable scent. Maybe our noses are impaired?
The yellow-flowered variety ‘Athens’ is said to be reliably fragrant. I simply enjoy the pretty flowers on mine and try not to be jealous of gardeners who wax rhapsodic about their plant’s fragrance.
