Freesia and roses. I have a large collection of roses of all types in my garden. At least 60 different varieties from rugosas to tea roses to old fashioned English and Bourbon roses.

Here you go, liketobake.

They are evergreen shrubs and small trees growing to 1-15 m tall. The leaves are opposite or in whorls of three or four, 5-50 cm long and 3-25 cm broad, dark green and glossy with a leathery texture. The flowers are solitary or in small clusters, white or pale yellow, with a tubular-based corolla with 5-12 lobes ('petals') from 5-12 cm diameter. Flowering is from about mid-spring to mid-summer and many species are strongly scented.

Ohh....now if we are talking scent, it's a toss up between roses and lilacs!

Native to my area and flowers that I love are poppies, Jackob's ladder, peonies, daylily's (which can be boring unless you have many different colors), shrub roses (rosa rubrafolium is one I love), lilac, lily of the valley, bee balm, cone flower, coreopsis, silver mound, iris, and many more.

Oh wait you said favorite flower:lol: That would have to be the beautifully fragrant flower of the Linden tree which blooms in June here in Maine. The flower is not elegant, white/off white star shaped blooms, but the frangrance is so intoxicating. I would compare it's strong scent to a gardenia, though they dont smell the same, it's just a powerful, and unique scent.
