MADISON (WKOW) -- A colorful landscape is a thing of beauty to enjoy with your eyes, but it should also appeal to your other senses.
Melinda Myers says sweet autumn clematis bursts into bloom each fall, creating a beautiful and fragrant welcome to visitors. She says the buzzing of the bees adds to the enjoyment.
The fragrant flowers of the fall blooming bugbane add a bit of sweet perfume to a shade garden. The rustle of the tree leaves, ornamental grasses, and wind chimes add another dimension of enjoyment.
The soft fuzzy leaves of lambs' ears beg to be petted and a pot of scented geraniums releases a fragrance with each petting.
Garlic chives brighten the late summer and fall garden and can be used to add a light garlic flavor to your favorite dishes. The fragrant leaves, flowers and even seeds are edible. You may need to contain and deadhead to keep the aggressive plant in bounds.
