Hogweed & WillDB you are spoiling all my fun.
Actually there is some sort of access point to the fosse septic in the middle of this patch, probably why it was created in the first place, so that is another reason to do something with it other than grass it over.
Anyway, here is my Plan A, maybe a few too many, but can think about it, is only Plan A.
My Plan A List for a White Flower Bed
Allium Mount Everest - Tall Globular
Delphinium ‘Snowgoose’ - Tall Spires
Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan' - Tall Clump Daisy
Leucanthemum 'Old Court' - Frilly Daisy
Nicotiana x sanderae 'Fragrant Cloud' - Star like flowers
Dicentra spectabilis f. alba - Arching Stems, fern like leaves
Malva moshata alba - Bowl like flowers and fern like leaves
Dianthus 'Haytor White' - Fringed flowers and grey/green foliage -
Lavandula angustifolia 'Baby White - Small spiked flowers, evergreen grey foliage
Campanula carpatica White Clips - Cushion forming, bell like flower
Cerastium tomentosum - Star like flowers, felt leaves
Salvia argentea - Downy silver foliage
Hosta 'Fire and Ice' - Varigated Leaf
Tried to mix it up with shapes and textures and got some nice fragrances too. Will have to add some winter flowering pansies or something to get it through the winter and a whole host of white bulbs for the following spring (2016), too late now, will start off with what I have and turn ‘white’ from May onwards.
If anyone knows of any particular difficulties with any of these choices (or you are laughing your socks off at the idea), please let me know. I have drawn a little plan, all colour coded and stuff, but couldn't get it on here. Will probably end up nothing like anyway.
