White flower - What are the white flowers in the back ground

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The thick border gardens include coneflowers, daylilies, hydrangeas, amsonia, verbena, bronze fennel, salvia, and many more perennials and shrubs. Their bursts of colors, wide variety of leaf shapes and colors, and undulating mounds create a beautiful composition.

Fertilize sustainably. To encourage flowering, use a fertilizer low in nitrogen and high in phosphorus.Fertilizer's three main ingredients are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, or NPK.10-10-10 means there is an equal proportion N, P and K. Hydrangeas like a low N and a high P; thus a combination of 10-40-10 would be ideal.My general rule of thumb to remember what the numbers mean is to start with the first number and apply from the top of the plant to the bottom. As such, N is for the green, P is for the bloom and K is for the root or up and down and all around.To refresh your understanding of pH, it refers to the acidity of the soil and is measured by the number of hydrogen ions present in the soil. It's a logarithmic scale based on the power of 10. As such, a pH of 6 is 10 times more acidic than pH of 7. Thus, even a little change in pH can make a big difference. A pH of 7 is neutral.A pH lower than than 7 is acidic.A ph higher than 7 is alkaline.Most plants like a pH between 6.5 and 7. Hydrangeas like it more acidic than most plants.More regional gardening guides
