Zaluzianskya capensis 'Midnight Candy'

Night phlox

If you only grow one annual then this little plant with a very big name should be it. 

Named after Adam Zaluziansky von Zaluzian, a 16th-century Bohemian botanist, it's one of the most heavenly scented plants we know. 

In the evening it fills the garden with an overwhelming perfume which intensifies as dusk turns to dark. 

We wouldn't have a BBQ without it.
