Hi all planning an all white area on the patio, maybe a few very dark plants mixed in but mostly white and want any suggestions for white flowers that are scented in the evening. Got a few but wondered if anyone had any interesting ideas? Thanks in advance
Nicotiana comes in white.
Sweet peas for summer - loads of whites to choose from. I've got Cathy, which I find highly scented and very floriferous, and is a creamy white, and Dorothy Eckford is very good. I have Wild Swan and Castle of Mey for this year too.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
If you dont mind a bit of yellow creeping in on your white flowers then a mock orange is a good shrub. The flowers dont last all that long, but the scent fills my entire garden day and night when it is flowering
Both neighbours comment on the scent when it's in flower
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
Phlox White Admiral with clusters of pure white flowers is desirably scented and grows about 3 foot (in old money). Like suns or part shade
