Much like a blank canvas, the color white symbolizes a fresh start. It also symbolizes the idea of simplicity, elegance and optimism. If you are someone that enjoys a soft, relaxing space, consider incorporating the purity of a white color palette in your garden like some of the examples below.
Simplicity: Try a mixed border of white flowering plants, white variegated leaves, plus a sprinkling of all-green plants for some contrast. A border like this doesn't jump out at you, but instead encourages you to relax and enjoy the details of each plant.
Elegance: White furniture, a white pergola, and lots of white twinkling lights amongst all green plants has simplicity and elegance wrapped all around it. Place a few silver-foliaged plants to ramp up the sparkle a bit more.
Optimism: Use white plants to create a happy contrast when you pair them with bold colors such as red, purple or pink. When you mix in the clean palette of white, it amplifies the joy of other colors.
