  • Yes, jasmine is very nice, but it is a creaper. It needs something to climb on. Gardenia's are very nice too. Any herb is good, i like basil. Even when i just touch my basil, it sends of a wonderful smell. Just brushing up to it lets of it's wonderful scent & you can smell it everywhere!

    First off, where do you live? The zone you are in really is the decision maker as to what you can plant/

  • tea olive, roses, jasmine, honey suckle, carolina jessamine, Daphne odora, brugmansia, banana shrub, Sweetbox, Armandii Clematis, Calycanthus 'Athens' , sweet shrub, ginger lilies, easter lilies, viburnum carlesi, viburnum Mohawk, roses.

    Hope this helps! All of this will grow in Humid GA, i know it's hotter in FL, but you might still have luck! Look up the plants & check their info on where they can grow. Pretty sure most of these will grow in FL.
