    Hi! I'm looking for the names of fragrant shrubs that are safe for chickens. I have roses and lilacs. I ordered a bunch of butterfly bush from direct gardening but only one grew. Thanks!

    I'm trying rosemary, supposed to be pretty heat tolerant too.

    maybe some jasmine? it's a vine, but with a trellis, it can easily be trained to grow more shrublike........

    Is jasmine edible? Check first about possible toxicity. Also mint, catnip, various viburnums (Carlesi, Burkwoodi, and Juddii are fragrant), both species of Buddlea. In acid soil blueberries, otherwise any other fruiting plants. Mary
