I prefer to use white flowers as an accent colour, but I know that many people love all white gardens (sometimes called moon gardens because of the way the flowers reflect the light). Here are some of my favourites – I hope you like some of them too. If I’ve mentioned where I photographed them, the gardens are well worth a visit.
Posting this picture reminds me I didn’t share the pictures of white roses I took last year – I must make a note to do that!
Although this is a post on white flowers, I haven’t felt the need to be a purist – after all, what’s a little pink (or cream, or yellow) between friends?
Today’s post is inspired by Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White Flowers – why not join in? If I’ve missed one of your favourites, let me know – I may have a picture somewhere!

This has cheered me upon a particularly uninspiring day (as far as the weather goes). If it hadn’t gone dark already I could have nipped out and taken a shot of the just-appearing snowdrops.
I’ll be looking out for the snowdrops!
Thank you! Its a cold rainy day in the Mojave Desert today… I appreciate your images.
I don’t imagine you get too many of those – though of course I could be wrong. It’s a beautiful part of the world.
They are beautiful. I don’t usually plant white flowers, but opt for color. I have seen photos of moon gardens, and they are de’light’ful.
Like the pun! I love white pelargoniums in theory – I always think they’re the perfect plants for a sunny windowsill and they give such a classic look, but it’s hard to find a pure white one that doesn’t fade to a dodgy shade of brown. I always start off looking for one as summer comes around, then end up buying pink or something like that.
These are gorgeous. I love that iris and I am not usually so keen on them. Great photos too.
It is a showy one. I prefer irises when they’re grown in clumps or drifts.
WOW!!! These pics are awesome!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
A beautiful bouquet
Stunning flowers but the name Wollerton Old Hall really puts a smile on my face. What a garden!
It is lovely. You’ve reminded me of your post about Wollerton, which I thoroughly recommend to anyone reading this.
