Hi, I have an area with full sun in my garden that I like to install some low-growing shrub or perennials with white flowers. I like it white to complement other areas which are now decoreated mostly with red, pink or purple. Thanks,

Here are some white bloomers to investigate for your needs: angel's trumpet (Datura innoxia), evening primrose (Oenothera casepitosa), old-fashioned four o'clocks (Mirabilis), jasmine tobacco (Nicotiana alata) and Convolvulus cneorum. Pretty white annuals include 'Crystal White' zinnias, 'Armour White' verbena, and 'Purity' cosmos.

For cooler weather, try fragrant stock or Matilija poppy (Romneya coulteri), a big, bushy perennial with white petaled crape paper-like flowers.
