The Q&A Archives: White Garden/night Blooming Plants

Question: Planning A white flower garden. need suggestions for type of plantings. Sun site. Prefer perrineals but annuals until others are blooming. Thank you

Answer: There are so many plants to consider! Some sun loving perennials that are available in white or near white would include baptisia, Siberian iris, dianthus, daylily, true lily, Oriental poppy, Shasta daisy, foxglove, campanula, iris, echinacea, hardy hibiscus, hollyhock, dahlia, rose, mum, and Japanese anemone. Annuals would include petunia, marigold, gladiolus, vinca, stock, nicotiana, moonflower, morning glory, nierembergia, sweet alyssum, and others. You could also consider those with silver foliage. By adding shrubs and vines the choice is even broader, in particular you might consider assorted clematis, rose of sharon, mock orange, lilac, potentilla and spirea. I hope this gives you some ideas.
