White flowers brighten shady areas, and are especially enjoyable at dusk when their blossoms pop through the shadows. Add even more interest with contrasting textures and forms, both in plant shapes and in flowers. For instance, tall, spiky plants like Culver’s Root mixed with lower plants like Iris crista ‘Alba’ and large flowered Hydrangea arborescens. Include plants with silver or gray leaves like Antennaria, Rattlesnake Master. , or Broad Toothed Mountain Mint. Add bottlebrush grass whose airy seed heads float above blossoms and mingle with foliage adding texture. When your garden is complete, wait for dusk, get a cool drink, pull up a lawn chair, and enjoy while the sun sets.
