If you’ve taken a moonlight stroll in your garden, you may have noticed how plainly the color white stands apart. It attracts the light beautifully, and provide a loving air to the garden. Sketchy areas which feel dull or dark can be cheered خرید زاموفیلیا considerably with a few white decorations.
The color white can also help pull together disparate components of the garden. Do you have a bed with many colors and themes, that feels spread or disorganized? Adding a few bold white bloomers can give your eyes something to rest on, and bring harmony to your plantings.
Here are a few of definitely the whites:
Stewartia rostrata is a gorgeous Camellia relative to 20′ in time, growing as a wide, multi-stemmed tree. Their crisp white blossoms with yellow centers exhibit prettily contrary to the rich green leaves in June-July, then in fall they turn a brilliant series of reds, yellows, and purple as they go dormant.
Plant it in full sun or part shade, with humid, slightly acidic soil. Stewartia makes a great companion to Rhododendrons!
Styrax japonica or Japanese people Snowbell is another of definitely the trees and shrubs. Walking under a Snowbell Tree in flowers is a magical experience. The white bell-shaped flowers cover the twigs, and you can look up and see the small yellow centers on all the hanging blossoms. It can get to 30′ in time, and is a well-behaved garden plant, needing little pruning to develop an excellent form.
Rhododendron ‘Mi Amor’ is one of the finest silent celestial body gardening plants out there. Not only does it have gorgeously large white trusses of blossoms, but the perfume is magnificent! It’s not just a one-season wonder either; the rich green vegetation has great texture, and the swelling flowerbuds, which look like slender artichokes, provide months of interest before the blossoms happen!
‘Dora Amateus’ is another favorite, with masses of white plants within the plant in April and may. This is one of the toughest Rhodies out there, taking seacoast wind and other adverse conditions without a hint of stress. It’s small enough to tuck in anywhere, reaching only 2-3′, and the deep green vegetation looks great with other plants.
Hydrangea petiolaris, the Climbing Hydrangea, is one of the few vines you can grow without a trellis — it will cling alone to your wall or fencing. The heart-shaped leaves alone would make it worth growing, but it blossoms profusely through the summer and early fall — flashy white lacecap flowers which are held above the vegetation.
Or, if you prefer a shrub, Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Madame Emile Mouilliere’ is a real show-stopper. This old-fashioned variety has been online for a long time, and you can see why — the blossoms are ginormous, and they cover the plant from Come early july to December, with little blue or pink speckles appearing on the plants as they age.
Hydrangeas, both shrubs and climbing, do best with regular water and a good layer of mulch over the soil, and will take sun or bright shade with equal happiness.
White vegetation can be every bit as striking as white flowers, and often gives a longer season of interest.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Gentsch White’ or Gentsch White Canadian Hemlock is a feathery weeper with white new growth. This is a fantastic shrub for year-round interest, and looks great partially shade. Settle it in next to a craggy rock to bring a timeless look to your garden.
Acorus gramineus ‘Variegatus’ or Variegated Sweet Flag Your lawn makes a cheery evergreen accent in sun or shade. This your lawn is quite simple to grow, requiring no maintenance beyond a bit of summer water, and it’s really one of the few plants that truly grows in boggy or heavy garden soil.
Now that you’ve seen some of my favorites, why not perk up a sketchy corner of your garden with a splash over of white variegation, or bring the easy elegance of white plants to your beds? As you keep an eye out on your moonlit garden, you’ll see them great brightly in the night.
