We shared our garden before (Sustainable Gardening in LA), and now we would like to share photos of some white flowers in our yard.
Grandma planted this sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritima, annual) as a ground cover. Here’s how it looked in 2009.
Burgundy plum (Prunus salicina, Zones 5–8) flower
The flower buds of Chinese chives (Allium tuberosum, Zones 3–9) make a great dish.
An Epiphyllum (Zones 10–11 or as a houseplant) flower lasts only one night, but it has a strong, pleasant smell. Vietnamese traditionally like to drink tea and sing or compose poems while watching the flowers open.
