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!

These flowers are beautiful in their unassuming color and delicate appeal.
Happy New Year to you and your love ones!
Thanks so much – Happy New Year to you too!
That white iris was beautiful!
Green and white are such beautiful colors together. You have a gorgeous gallery.
I wouldn’t have thought of posting this but for you – thanks for the prompt!
Brilliant photo’s and they bring a shine to this continual dull, grey weather. A reminder that summer will come. Like you I tend to use only the occasional white flower but all these are stunning.
I keep expecting white to come to the landscape (in the form of snow) but it’s still quite warm here.
A beautiful assortment. I love white flowers! They are so fresh-looking.
I’ve been enjoying your frost-covered pictures – your recent post of the umbel type seed head is a completely different type of white flower!
A stunning gallery you’ve shared here. So pure and crisp. I like the thought of a moon garden now that I understand it.
Thanks – I imagine it would be wonderful if it was packed with scented, night blooming plants (Nicotiana, Hesperis etc). I hadn’t realised that petunias are more strongly scented at night.
I don’t plant many white flowers, but this post makes me wonder why. Maybe I need a moon garden….
Maybe you do!
Gorgeous gallery! I’m definitely planting more white flowers this year!
I enjoyed yours too.
i feel as though I just stumbled upon buried, or should I say planted, treasure. I LOVE white flowers. I did our church courtyard in all white. I see some that need to be added. Thanks for this solid gold post.
That sounds lovely – white gardens have a particular kind of grace.
I wanted the flowers to have a neutral effect on the mood of those praying or meditating. It is beautiful, but needs constant work. It looks neglected now…but it is winter here.
