The tea olive - blooms are *very fragrant* - We have two of these planted in front of our house....if the wind/temperature/weather conditions are just right, we can smell the tea olive blooms even if we are in the backyard. One of my favorites - I was introduced to this plant on a fall visit to Charleston...the scent was in the air everywhere because most residents had them planted in their gardens.
I noticed that one of our lilac bushes already has flowers!
