I've just planted some Cerastium along my fence. Grey/silver foliage with small white flowers, hence the nickname - snow in summer.
I made what is basically a long window box on the fence, and have been playing around with various bits and pieces which will thrive in it. White/cream/yellow flowered is the main theme. I also have a prostrate Phlox, whose name escapes me, but is also white flowered in spring, and an Arabis, also white flowered. These all cope with neglect and take dry conditions. We get a lot of rain but they have excellent drainage which is what they all prefer. The fence is north west facing, but the box gets a fair bit of sun because of it's location.
Dianthus would probably suit you well too - there are plenty of pale and white flowering varieties.
