White is the second most useful colour in the garden after green. I am progressively increasing the number and variety of white and grey plants that I grow.
- Roses are a current favourite and there are white Species Roses that are worth seeking out. Rosa: arvensis, banksiae, fedtscenkoana, helenae, longcuspis and multiflora just as examples.
- The early flowers of Snowdrops and the Christmas Rose Heleboris niger start the flowering year.
- Camellia japonica Nobilissima and Tulip Purissima are pure spring whites .
- Personally I like Cistus Corbariensis and Malva moschata Alba to contrast with green leaves and pink stamen.
