Look for the new, tender growth on spruce trees.

Meyer lemon flowers are very fragrant indoors and outside.

Jasminum polyanthum, aka winter jasmine, is widely available in the winter and will perfume an entire room.

Ellen and C.L. had such fun answering questions from the audience at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in 2018 that we’ll be back in 2019!
