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!

Congratulations! I have chosen this post to be featured on my Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.
I sure hope your week is off to a wonderful start.
My favorite flower color is white and this post is such a feast on my eyes. Thank you!
I’m glad you enjoyed it. I was surprised I found so many white flowers for Cee’s challenge – but pleasantly surprised!
Such a gorgeous treat for a day like today that is cold and gray; great response to the challenge.
A beautiful collection of flowers and your wonderful photographic eye. I love the rambling rose in particular. We used to have a similar rose which people called a “Dog Rose”. Is that correct or is a “Dog Rose” anything in particular? Best wishes TJ
There is one particular species rose (Rosa canina) which experts will tell you is the dog rose but for many people, dog roses are the wild ones, those graceful singles in shades of pink and white.
Thanks so much for the information. Canina – of course – Latin for Dog. Maybe it has thorns like a dog’s tooth? Anyway…very interesting. Best wishes. TJ
Love the beautiful white peonie.
A lovely collection 🙂 I think I’d make a beeline for Wollerton Old Hall.
These are gorgeous–both the flowers themselves and the photographs!
Gorgeous photos….getting hungry to see more in the garden myself!
