The most fragrant corner of Angeleno Heights

Angeleno Heights — Thanks to reader Dean Decent for directing us to the corner of West Kensington Road and Laveta Terrace  to see and smell the giant wall of jasmine that wraps around a Victorian-era home.

“If you go there in the afternoon when the breeze kicks in, it’s amazing to stand there,” said Dean.

  1. Do you know of any sweet-smelling spots in your neighborhood?

  2. Thanks for photos…Huge area of Jasmine!

  3. Thanks! I’m going to go smell this!

  4. Star Jasmine is beautiful, and its fragrance is just the right intensity! I planted it when I admired other gardens that I would pass by. https://www.joyusgarden.com/how-to-care-for-grow-star-jasmine/ I’ve been enjoying my blooms for several weeks now!

  5. My mom and aunts called it “Huele de Noche” or “Night Blooming Jasmine”, although I think you can smell it all day. It reminds me of summer in LA and my childhood. Glorious.

  6. I know it as night-blooming jasmine also. It seems to be a great plant for along fences. It twines upward, but it’s not so fast-growing that it becomes a nuisance. Sometimes it needs a little help after being planted, so that some vigorous shoots find the fence.
