Camellia is a species of flowering plants that produces beautiful pink flowers. The colors of the flowers can also vary significantly and other alternatives include white, red and yellow flowers. It isn’t a common addition to an herb garden, but the leaves from the plant are sometimes used as an herb. The most common approach is to use the leaves to make teas.
Soapwart is a particularly common perennial plant that comes from the carnation family. The name soapwart is highly suitable, as the plant is often used as a form of mild soap, often in a dilute solution. Unlike most of the other herbs on this list, soapwart tends not to be eaten directly or used in cooking.
10. Scented Geranium
There are dozens of different scented geraniums within the geranium genus and the individual species tend to vary in the scent that they give off. Some examples include strawberry, lemon, apple and mint, although there are also many other species. The species are frequently used in cooking as part of sweet dishes. Not all scented geraniums work well in this role, but two examples are the rose and the lemon scented geranium. Using a number of these species in an herb garden can also give off a nice complex scent.
