I’d like to create a white themed garden that looks pretty at night and will blend in my back yard corner area. I know that the moonflower is a good choice for a running vine. Are there any white flowering evergreen shrubs or other choices I can choose from also? I think that white is elegant and relaxful for a garden setting.

Not only should you consider white flowers for a white garden but the pale colors or pale pink, light lavender, lilac, and pale yellow as well. These color just pop when twilight begins, especially pale lavender, something about light wavelengths and theirs being long, I think.

Some great flowers are impatients, they come in white but also light shades of lilac and pink and petunias also in those colors.

For next year you might want to add white triumphator tulips.

There are also white cone flowers, white roses (alba rugosa and Ice berg), lambsear (gray-green foliage with pale pink flowers), hosta plantaginea (has a large trumpet shaped flower that smells of gardenia), Annabell hydrangea, nicotiana Only the Lonely (flower smells of gardenia and opens at night), Other white plants, White Profusion butterfly bush, phlox ‘David’, the near white daylily Joan Senior, white variegated hosta, Casa Blanca Oriental lily, Peacock Gladiola, regular white gladiola, white delphinium, Muscadet Oriental lily, nigella African bride, and white Sonata (a short one!) cosmos.

Many trumpet shaped flowers will attract the night-active hummingbird moths and hawk moths, which feed at dusk and are amazing to watch, very much like hummingbirds themselves. They are insect the size of a small hummingbird.

A grey, white and pale yellow garden would be wonderful.
