A lovely old-fashioned favorite. Graceful sprays of cherry-red, heart-shaped flowers over ferny foliage. The perfect choice for brightening lifeless shaded areas.

Western Mugwort

Western Mugwort ‘Valerie Finnis’ (Artemisia ludoviciana)

Sometimes called “white sage”, the glowing silvery-white foliage is an excellent choice for adding contrast in the landscape. Very tolerant of dry conditions and poor soils. Can be cut back in mid-summer if the foliage starts to get leggy to encourage fresh, more compact growth.

One of the best perennials for long-lasting interest. Ferns lend a peaceful feeling to any setting. Dependable color and texture looks great all season.

White Clover, Dutch Clover

Worth growing for beautiful foliage alone. Vigorous growing groundcover forms an attractive carpet of foliage. These unique plants are sure to attract attention!

White Cranesbill

White Cranesbill 'Album' (Geranium sanguineum)

Pure white, cup-shaped blooms above a mound of finely-cut leaves. Foliage provides a colorful show of deep red in autumn. A winter hardy and heat tolerant selection.

White Muscari, White Grape Hyacinth

White Muscari, White Grape Hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum)

A lovely white version of the familiar Grape Hyacinth. Produces tight clusters of tiny, bell-like blooms that resemble a cluster of grapes. These spring bloomers spread easily, but once done flowering the grassy foliage blends quietly into the background.

White Old-Fashioned Bleeding Heart, Lyre Flower

White Old-Fashioned Bleeding Heart, Lyre Flower 'Alba' (Dicentra spectabilis)

A beautiful variation on a familiar perennial garden favorite. Gracefully arching stems carry white, locket-shaped flowers. Best if sheltered from strong winds. Foliage may die back by midsummer, so plant amongst later maturing companions to fill the void.

White Rain Flower, Rain Lily

White Rain Flower, Rain Lily (Zephyranthes candida)

Enchanting crocus-like flowers add a delicate touch to the garden. Rain flowers are native to marsh areas and near river ways in South America. They grow from bulbs and can be easily tucked in among a rock garden, narrow nooks along pavement, or grown in a container to accent a patio…

White Snakeroot

White Snakeroot (Eupatorium rugosum)

Chocolate-brown foliage with green and chocolate leaf undersides and stems. Contrasts with puffy white clouds of blooms. Attracts butterflies to the garden.

White Star Creeper, Blue Star Creeper

White Star Creeper, Blue Star Creeper (Pratia angulata)

A very quick spreading groundcover that roots freely as it goes and can be invasive in moist soils. Plant it wherever its lush carpet of easy care foliage and dainty blooms won't crowd out other perennials.
