I've never planted an all-white garden but it might be interesting to undertake one,
starting with narcissus in late winter and other daffodils, camellias, azaleas and dogwoods joined by Mock Orange and spiraea with ruffles of alyssum along the edges.
Maybe I'd force some Maureen tulips.
White daffodil Thalia among the last to bloom.
Ice Wings and Sailboat
Some uther whites blooming now in my garden include:
Come late spring to early summer, there are so many pretty blossoms in white that could be gathered together.
Oakleaf Hydrangea has fat buds soon to open.
White Pandora daylilies w/purple throat are starting to form scapes.
Other Summer blooming whites are budding or thinking about it.

I'm thinking the midsummer Fiesta Garden could have Mock Orange mixed in to bloom while we wait for summer blossoms. When I thought of the Fiesta Garden, I thought of the dark red lilies that show promise there now. White lilies would be a fragrant addition to a White Garden.
Right now I have white pentas in the Yellow Rose bed. Cuttings can be rooted from them.
Oh, the plans! I'm still picking up debris from the storms earlier this week. As I work more white blooms come to mind: Hostas with a white edge and white blooms, white Daturas, Madagascar periwinkles in white. The list is endless.
What's in your White Garden, real or imagined?
