White relief

In a garden with much saturated color, it is a good thing to place white flowering plants intermittently.
The white not only gives a much needed rest to the eye, but brings a freshness to a scene that might otherwise seem a little overwhelming.
Being an unabashed lover of large flowers (especially bombs), white is needed all the more.
So, here are a few of the whites in bloom in my garden presently.
several cultivars of peony including 'Festiva Maxima'
Japanese Iris  'Great Heron'
Spirea 'Snowmound'
