Small White Flowers Names

Allium: Also known as flowering onion, this plant grows from a bulb or from seed, and produces globes of purple clusters of flowers atop long stems. Plant in full sun, in moist but well-drained soil.

Anemone: Also known as windflower, these tuberous flowers produce poppy-like blooms in early-to-mid spring. Plant anemones in full sun or part shade.

Artemisia: This perennial plant is grown more for its silvery, white foliage than for the small, white flowers, but makes an excellent backdrop for more showy flowers in a perennial bed. Give Artemisia (hardy to zone 4) dry, moderately fertile soil.

Alyssum: Classified as a perennial, this plant is grown as an annual in cold climates. Its tiny clusters of blooms are attractive at the edge of a bed or in pots with geraniums or other annuals.

Aster: Asters bloom in late summer to early fall, when many other perennials have faded. They range from varieties that skim the ground, to those towering 6 feet high. The daisy-like flowers come in many colors; the most common shades are purple, lavender, pink, red, blue and white. Plant asters in moist, well-drained soil in a sunny area.

Astilbe: For color in a shade garden, few perennials can beat astilbe. The plants produce feathery, plumelike flowers and fernlike leaves. Astilbes prefer acidic, moist soil and partial shade.

Bachelor Button: Sometimes called cornflower, this plant is more frost-hardy than most annuals, and produce small, multi-petaled flowers. Sow seeds in the garden in early spring in a sunny location.

Balloon Flower: Balloon flowers bring to mind cottage gardens, with their old-fashioned bell-shaped flowers. Plant these perennials in sun or partial shade. They prefer slightly acidic, moist soil.

Bee Balm: Plant bee balm in a perennial bed, but keep an eye on it. This plant can become invasive. The large, bright flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Grow bee balm in sun or partial shade and a rich soil.

Bellflower: This old fashioned perennial has lovely bell-shaped flowers; most varieties are blue, lavender, pink or white. Plant bellflower in sun and provide moist, rich soil.

Blanketflower: Gaillardias, or blanketflowers, thrive in hot, dry locations and produce daisy-like flowers in a variety of hues, such as red, yellow and gold. Many are multi-colored. Plant them in sandy, well-drained soil and don’t overwater them.

Bleeding Heart: This native plant produces spectacular white, pink or red heart-shaped blooms on long, arching stems. Plant bleeding hearts in slightly acidic, moist soil in partial shade.

Bougainvillea: This thorny shrub or vine-like plant grows throughout the Southwestern and Southeastern United States. Its flowers are papery and come in a variety of shades, such as fuschia, pink, white or salmon. It loves heat, full sun and dry conditions. Grow it as an annual in the north.

A Guide to the Culinary Basils
Ocimum basilicum includes a number of different basils most commonly used for cooking.
Sweet basil
Your basic basil, with large leaves and white flowers. The Genovese variety (names include Sweet Genovese
and Genovese or Genova Profumitissima) is particularly nice, with a very pleasing flavor preferred for pestos.
I've also found it a vigorous, luxuriant grower, slow to bolt.
Dwarf or bush basils (O. b. minimum)
These shorter varieties (Spicy Globe, Piccolo Verde, Fino Verde or Fine Green) bear small, narrow leaves
with a sweeter, less pungent smell than the large-leaf types

The question about the names of weeds has come up here often in recent days. It just occured to me that, while weeding is part of my everyday's routines, I do not know the names of many of them. I do have nutsedge in a lot of place,- just never bothered to find out what it is called.
If I ever get a camera, I will take a picture of one of the worst weeds I ever encountered. Grows a bit like garlic, white flowers, makes small white bulbs, which tend to multiply by the dozen.
That stuff is impossible to get rid of by hand-weeding. NEEDS to be sprayed w. Round-Up, which of course is often not a solution (as there are other plants nearby
