An interesting rare perfumed plant is Herald's Trumpet which has wonderful large white flowers with a sweet tropical perfume. It is a vigorous woody climber which typically bleed a white milky sap from cut stems.

This plant is technically a climber but is normally grown as a shrub to 6-10ft tall with dark glossy green leaves that are deeply veined. The large white flowers have a rich tropical scent and flowers through the warmer periods of the year, spring and summer. It prefers sub-tropical and tropical conditions to thrive and can look miserable in areas where temperatures fall below 10C. Prefer full sun, well-drained soil; protect from frost, particularly when young.
