Large gardens of the type that are often associated with a country house mansion are usually divided into separate sections. Each section is designed in a particular style and one form is the so-called “white garden” because all the plants have white flowers. If you are attracted to this idea then this list of fifteen all white bloomers should prove useful. This collection comes from an article which I found on the Garden Lovers Club website.
Here is a collection of 15 White Colored Plants for an all-white garden space.
White flowers are often the symbol of purity, and they do lighten a space. They often frame pops of color as well, but the most attractive aspect may be the cool, soothing aura they project. Mixed with green leaves and stems, white blooms beckon observers to comforting havens with refreshing wafts of perfume and pleasing appearances.
1. Crocus Chrysanthus-?Snow Bunting?

Plant these little bulbs two inches apart in the fall for late winter to early spring blooms in heat zones 1-8. They need full to partial sun and grow up to three or four inches tall. Better yet, they?re perennials with average water needs and low maintenance.
2. Easter Lily
Bulbs can be planted in fall for summer blooming, or you can buy the blooming plants in stores and plant them after the frost warning has passed. They need sun to part sun in zones 4-9 and can grow 2-5 feet. Also perennials, they need average watering and not much care but have a lovely scent.
?3. White Lilac
A white lilac shrub can hide unpleasant-looking things behind it while giving off a wonderful perfume in the spring. It?s a nice green color after it?s done blooming and can be a backdrop for white flowers around it. It grows in zones 3-7.
4. Climbing Iceberg Rose
This perfect-for-trellises rose can climb to 10 feet within a year or so. Zones 4a-9b support it, and it?s hardy, everblooming and fragrant, not to mention resistant to disease. This rose can also be used as a shrub or ground cover because it is easy to train.
Scented or unscented, these low-lying 18-inch perennials love shade and provide various shades of green for the entire growing season. The Aphrodite blooms in August, emitting a ?heady? fragrance and grass-green, wide leaves. They?re also good borders in zones 5-8S/9W. Space them about 18 inches apart since they spread quite a bit and need separating after a while.
