Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens)
Heliotropes are popular garden plants that are known for their sweetly fragrant flowers. Native to Peru, they are evergreen shrubs in the tropics and warm subtropics. In temperate zones they are grown as annuals, often planted in containers or beside patios where their fragrance can be appreciated. Many cultivars are available with a range of flower colors and scents. Heliotrope flowers are also famous for attracting butterflies.
