Galvanised Tin Jug with simply cream flowers.
Stocks, wax flower, lisianthus. Contrasting here with sage green foliage's.
A modestly priced table arrangement. The effect is light and frothy.
 White flowers are a quintessential element of English Gardens.
Some of the great British Gardens feature a White Garden.
Sissinghurst Castle, Hidcote Manor and Barrington Court.

The elegant blend of green and white, works well in low light, very suitable in

Variegated forms are some of the most striking. Hosta 'Patriot, strong emerald green leaves.
Viburnum 'Mariesii' with its white lace cap flowers.

Jasmine, lilies, tuberose and stephanotis are just a few classic white
blooms associated with strong perfume.
