Re: White Garden wall and path construction

Border suggestions
white lobelia & allysum for this year, white creeping thyme in sunny spots &
white astilbe in the shade. white impatiens. Look for some of the neat
miniatures astilbes & varigated little hostas. Viola odorata comes in white
blooming also, but does spread. white trilliums! epimediums. Dutchmans
breeches (looks like a white bleeding heart or corydalis? neat ferny
foliage. small ferns, Hmm, how about white lavendar to make a short hedge?
or Erica carnea heather/heath sheared short. Miniature white roses?
My problem is, I have more ideas than time energy or money ;}
