The Many Colors of White

Rhododendron x 'Gomer Waterer'

Rhododendron x 'Cunningham's White'

All-white flower gardens are filled with subtle color variations showing up in golden anthers, magenta stigma, chartreuse sepal, or throaty pink corolla lobes.

…It is claimed that the most visited garden in England is The White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle.  Created by Vita Sackville West in the 1930’s, the idea of a white garden even today is ever fresh, romantic and fashionable.

Camellia japonica 'Magnoliaeflora'

Monrovia Nurseries is a main sponsor of The Signature Garden this year and has supplied many white blooming plants.  Complimenting the blooms are plants with reflective qualities found in white stomata, white leaf margins and  silky white/silver hairs.

The white characteristics of our plants will support the ethereal qualities we will achieve in the dream-like state of the garden.

    This garden looks like it’s going to be magical! You were the inspiration for me to finally take a hookey day and join my mom for a full feast of the show this year. I have always simply fit in what I can to a couple hours. Thank you ~ this will be fabulous!

    Hi Annie: Thank you for the comment and I’m excited to hear you’ll be at the Show. You are my first BNI post which earns you a complementary ticket 🙂
