Put fragrant plants near a walkway or patio, and you instantly add a whole new dimension, making functional spaces feel more enticing with scent. You'll want to linger longer outdoors if you've got coastal sweet pepperbush (Clethra alnifolia) perfuming the air, and its bright yellow color is especially appealing at the end of the growing season.
