More Great White Combinations

Some plants really come into their own in September, bringing a completely new life to any garden, and especially to a white garden that has long been devoid of many flowers. With the exception of the great Cimicifuga racemes, it's all about the leaves...Cimicifuga racemosa purpurea wafting over the delightful dogwood, Cornus kousa 'Angela' (much like the more well-known 'Wolf Eyes', but with a 'tighter' habit)

The graceful branches (ones not eaten by the deer) of the superb Aralia elata 'Silver Umbrellas' in perfect harmony with the small shrub Hypericum 'Glacier'. Its leaves seem to be getting whiter as it produces it's dark contrasting berries....
