Wonderful Ways to Add White Flowers to Your Garden
White is arguably one of the most classic colors and makes a radiant addition to your garden. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of white flowers (like 'York Minster' rose above) and foliage to include in your beds and borders any season.
For an all-white garden, choose plants of different heights and textures to keep things interesting. Since many flowers that are white aren’t “true” white — meaning they often contain pigments of other colors like pink, blue and green — silver and gray plants can bounce those hints of colors across their foliage, helping a slightly off-white garden look more uniform.
Perhaps the most magical reason to grow a white flower garden is the color’s ability to keep shining long after the sun sets. White flowers and plants remain more visible at night than their colorful counterparts, so try planting a moon garden of white and silver flowers near the patio to enjoy on summer nights. And white flowers and plants serve as a backdrop to make all those vibrant flowers pop.
