Viburnum

Also called a "snowball" bush because of it's large snowball-like blossoms, viburnum are a country staple though they also do well in urban settings. Deer resistant and an attractant for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, viburnum is powerfully fragrant and an excellent addition to anyone designing a "smelly" garden.
