White is my absolute favorite in the garden, especially as the sun is setting. Plus the insects it attracts are always so interesting. You have some gorgeous white blooms.

Many of the whites do come with a nice fragrance, don't they?

Malar said...

So many white blooms! I bet most of them have very strong frangrance!
I like your clerodendrum! are they grown from seeds? How is the mulberry going on?

Bernie said...

Just love all your white flowers. What a fabulous selection. My favourite is that stunning Jasmine and Clerodendrum.

The unknown looks a lot like my Serissa foetida ... what we call the Snowflake plant. It's a little shrub with tiny white flowers.

You have so many wonderful white blooms. I do love the white hibiscus. I saw it in another of your posts and am just in love with it!

White flowers dominate my garden right now too because all my snowdrops are in bloom. I can't get over that white hibiscus--it's neon white.

Stephanie said...

I notice that white wild flower in my surrounding also. They are cute. Your white portulacas are pretty! And your dainty white flower of serissa is as wonderful. Enjoy your white white blooms!

Donna thank you..I guess we share the love of whites in the garden, even the butterflies that are often seen fluttering in the garden are mostly whites!

You are right One, even though I have not a single rose in the garden, at least 4 of those whites have sweet smelling fragrance!

Wong, thank you.Im not an expert photographer, but I tried my best to get good photos. Luckily now with the digital camera, I can easily delete all my mistakes and those fuzzy pictures

Malar, 4 of them have sweet fragrance I think you know which ones, esp both the jasmines. I bought the clerodendrum by mistake thinking it was misai kucing plant, see my post Wrong Plant. The mulberry is doing fine, will try to see you by next week.

So much white, it could be snow! I especially enjoyed the photo of the Citrus microcarpa with the dew clinging to the leaves. Very pretty!

p3chandan said...

Bernie, you are a gem! Thank you for letting me know the name of that cute plant with the tiny white flowers I had months ago! I just love both the attractive leaves and the cute flowers!

Thank you Rani.

Haha...'clean' post eh Rainfield?

Alistair, I dont actually planned to buy all white flower plants..it just happened, then I noticed most of them are all whites!

Thank you Dona.

Takaeko, happy that spring is finally there, I bet you have so many things to do in the garden!

Thank you Karin, I love the white hibiscus too but they dont last long, just one day!

Carolyn, I just love the white snowdrops with their drooping blooms, so aptly named!

Thank you Steph, you have wonderful blooms in your garden, just loved them all!

Donna said...

Your white exotic blooms are beautiful...I wish I could grow many of these in my white garden...alas no but I can enjoy them here...I can also just smell that jasmine!!

p3chandan said...

Donna thank you.Come as often as you want to see my whites! :) The orange jasmine is not only lovely but gives out such sweet fragrance, I can smell them the whole day while pottering in my garden!
