I've been adding white or lighter colored plants to better enjoy our outdoor space in the early evening. Some recent additions include low-growing Bunchberry, or Creeping Dogwood. I didn't have much luck with this a couple years ago when I tucked it in the front garden. I think it was getting too much sun. I'm tucking this shade lover in a deeper corner this time.
Mystery plant has these sweet six-petaled blooms, a pale gray-green color trimmed in white. I planted these bulbs two years ago and don't recall them showing up last season. I hope they spread readily throughout the garden around the upper deck.
Redtwig dogwood is covered in these tiny white flowers. Not the showiest of blooms, but these plants are usually sought for their fiery twigs. Nonetheless, they are a welcome sight when the sun dips below the horizon.
