Cool Whites

Many of the flowers currently in bloom in our garden delight with bright, bold colors  - shades of red, orange, purple, and deep pink that I absolutely love. However, there are also some cool white blooms  that are just reaching their peak, and one section of the front border dominated by pale flowers and and foliage that is looking particularly good right now.

The "white" end of the front border

'Limelight' hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight')

A white morning glory (Ipomoea purpurea)

White garden phlox (Phlox paniculata)

Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)

While I sometimes think that "white gardens" are a bit overdone, I can definitely see the appeal...
