White Blooms Go with Everything!

Looking for a versatile color to unite your garden beds? White-flowering plants not only add an elegant feel to your garden and help to cool it down, but also illuminate in the moonlight, creating a romantic glow in the evening hours. You can find almost any plant in white, so gardeners have a large variety to choose from.

We all love the classic Bearded Irises that have been around for years, but it is always exciting to try a new twist on an old favorite.
