MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Many people love the scent of a real Christmas tree or holiday wreath, but some greens are more fragrant and longer lasting than others.

Susie Bachman’s of Bachman’s Floral & Garden Center’s gives some tips on selecting Christmas trees and holiday wreaths.

First, she said there are certain types of greens that are more fragrant. Balsam, which is good for Christmas trees, and juniper stand out as best smelling.

Bachman said Fraser, which  is also good for Christmas trees, and pine, scotch, and cedar have a mild fragrance. Noble and spruce tops tend to have a lighter fragrance.

If you want to use evergreens indoors, she suggests using Fraser, balsam, pine, scotch, cedar and juniper. All of them should last 2-3 weeks indoors.

Spruce tops are more suitable for outdoor use.
