When I think of the four seasons, the first thing I usually think of are the colors of each season's palette, especially the colors found in the trees and flowers.
SPRING Japanese Magnolia Branch
Nothing can compare to the elegance of a creamy white Magnolia Blossom ...
White Clusters of Lady Banks Roses are stunning, too.
"A rose is a rose is a rose ..."
and White Roses are especially beautiful.
And last, but certainly not least ...
So, the next time you are replanting an existing flowerbed, designing a new one, or doing a major landscaping job, don't overlook using white in your garden. You can create a very elegant and peaceful look with white flowers and/or white-flowering trees.
When used as a border, white flowers are a stunning way to highlight a flowerbed, or outline a path. They also add interest and contrast when scattered in and amongst more colorful plantings. And, to me, nothing is more welcoming than a pair of urns at a front door and white flowers, interspersed with ivy or ferns, would create a "neutral" look that wouldn't take away from or contrast with the exterior colors of the house and trim.
I have to admit that I have never thought about using white in my landscapes, but I have inspired myself to consider it next Spring when it's time to replace my winter Pansies. How about you? Do you think you would like white flowers in your garden?
