Accent Shade Gardens with White & Silver Flowers and Foliage


The garden design plan outlined here features plants with white flowers and foliage that will stand out in a partial shade garden. A nice seasonal intro to this white perennial shade garden would be drifts of white tulips. Tulip 'Albion Star', 'Best White', 'Evita', 'Ice Princess' or 'Purissima' would start the season off right. Or perhaps 'Spring Green', with its green streaked white petals?
