What Plants With White Flowers Can I Plant? - Knowledgebase Question

We have an Eastern exposure (30' x 35') back yard in San Francisco (1 mile from the Pacific Ocean)...a 40'tall pine tree lives in our yard. The center section of the yard is lawn & all the way around can accomodate plants, trees, shrubs,ground covering, etc....now there are several ferns & a doz. shrubs & I want to add plants, shrubs, ground covering &/or trees that will have white flowers. What can you suggest? I am NOT an experienced gardener but I have purchased several Monrovia plants for our deck & they are doing well, so I think I can move on to Phase 2! Thank you, Alexis

Some perennial choices include: Phlox paniculata 'David' or Mt. Fuji', Echinacea purpurea 'White Lustre' or 'White Swan', delphinium 'Galahad', tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, iris, liatris, Achillea 'Snowsport', Candytuft "Snowflake', lilium 'Snow Trumpet', Monarda Didyma 'Snow White', Queen Anne's Lace, Astilbe, Shasta daisy, white Thalictrum (meadow rue), and Veronica speedwell 'Alba'. Some rugosa roses have white flowers, as do the hybrid rugosas 'Blanc Double de Courbet' and 'Henry Hudson'. Shrubs include star magnolia and Japanese Snowball. Almond trees and some magnolia's produce white flowers.
