+10 plants with white flowers

Luckily for you, there are a wide variety of species that have white flowers. Some are trees, some are climbers, and some are smaller plants that grow easily in pots or planters. Here we show you 10 of them.

Camellia or tea plant ( Camellia sinensis )

The camellia sinensis is an evergreen shrub or tree native to southern China and Southeast Asia that reaches a height of 1-9 meters. It blooms during the spring, producing flowers 2-4 centimeters in diameter.

It requires semi-shade, and an acidic soil, with a pH between 4 and 6. Irrigation will be moderate, also with acidic water or without lime. Supports up to -4ºC.

Snowdrop ( Galanthus nivalis )

The Galanthus nivalis is a bulbous plant native to Europe and Asia that reaches a height of 10-15 centimeters. Its flowers bloom in late winter, and are small, between 1.5 and 2.5 centimeters in diameter.

Its bulb is planted in autumn, in a land with good drainage, and it is watered in a moderate way, preventing it from drying out. It supports up to -18ºC, but you must bear in mind that after flowering the aerial part (leaves, flowers) will wither, and that it will not be until the next season when they come out again.

The Phalaenopsis are epiphytic orchids, rare lithophytes time, native to Southeast Asia. They grow to a height of 1-2 meters, although their growth is quite slow. They produce flowers in spring, grouped in lateral inflorescences.

They require a protected exposure from the sun, a specific substrate for orchids and moderate watering. They cannot stand cold or frost.

Of all the varieties that exist, the most recommended is the Phalaenopsis ‘Classic White’, because it has immaculate white flowers.

Its flowers are similar to those of orchids, which is why it is sometimes known as the orchid tree. These are large, measuring about 5 centimeters in diameter, and sprout in spring and summer.

To grow healthy requires a sunny exposure and moderate watering. It cannot stand drought, but waterlogging also hurts it. Otherwise, it supports up to -7ºC.

White rose (Rosa sp)

The rose bush is a shrub, depending on the climbing species or not, especially native to Asia. It can reach heights between 15 centimeters and more than 4-5 meters. The best known white flower variety is known as Rosal Pau Casals, which reaches 90 centimeters in height.
