Tips For Creating An All White Garden
Creating a white garden design in the landscape denotes elegance and purity. White flower themes are easy to create and work with, as many plants for an all-white garden come in various shapes, sizes, and bloom times.
If the area where you want to use a white garden was previously planted, you will need to remove the colored specimens or include them in the white flower theme.
There are many ways to create a completely white garden. One of the easiest and most practical ways for the home gardener to implement a white garden project is to start planting white flowers, shrubs, and trees, and then remove swatches of other colors as they bloom.
If no other colored plants are to be dug during flowering, mark the area for later removal.
Decide at this point which replacement plant you will use to complement your white garden design.
How to Create a White Garden
When creating an all-white garden, be sure to consider the background where the white flowering plants will grow. If it is not complementary to the white flowers, plant specimens tall and wide enough to disguise or hide it, such as the backyard trash can area.
Research the plants for all white gardens before you implement them. As you know, some white flowers fade to a sickly brown.
Don't belittle them, just remember to use these types of plants in your white garden design to planting other specimens to cover or distract from their decline.
The abundant foliage and showy blooms of the white crinum lily are perfect for hiding the worn white blooms of spring when using a white flower theme.
When using the crinum (lily of the marshes), remember that it may take a few years to produce flowers. Also, use plants with silver foliage for the transition.
All-White Garden Plants
White flower-themed gardens have many roles in the landscape. Scented white specimens like the angel's trumpet, iceberg rose, and moonflower can surround an outdoor seating area, while also encouraging guests to linger and enjoy the scent.
Many white flowers appear to glow in the dark, injecting the appeal of a night moon garden. The foliage of white flower-themed gardens can add contrast in a variety of textures in the sun and shade areas.
The variegated foliage of Solomon's seal, with its drooping white blooms, turns golden in the fall for provocative appeal as it creates an all-white garden in the shaded area.
Don't forget to spread ground covers like lily of the valley. Plants with variegated foliage, such as Hosta, can transition between various areas in the white garden design.
Many have white flowers. Get creative and experiment with learning how to create a white garden. Include plants that bloom in spring, summer, and even fall and winter.
Hellebore and white-flowered crocuses usually bloom in winter. With continuous effort, you can grace your landscape with a graceful white garden.
