A White and Green Miniature Garden


 
Gardening
Fairy gardens are full of colors. From the vibrant flower petals to the creative use of color on miniature accessories, a miniature garden can be like a rainbow, bringing life to a backyard, patio, porch, or container. Some gardeners carefully plan their fairy gardens to fit certain themes, such as Beach or Wild West. Others prefer them to grow organically, or even use their DIY skills to create magical, mystical miniature gardens. No matter how you like to design and grow your fairy garden, one important element that all gardeners should consider is color.

Color options run the gamut from dark and moody to bright and rainbow-filled. For a miniature garden that looks cool and cohesive all year long, it is worth considering the combination of green and white. Green is natural, earthy, and vibrant. White is fresh, clean, and contemporary. You have probably seen many miniature gardens that combine green with red flowers or pops of pink, but green and white is a truly unique and refreshing combo to consider. The “green” is easy—leaves and stems are usually green! How can you incorporate white into your garden? Read on for a few of our favorites.

Cactus

Here is a teeny, tiny cactus that will warm your heart in a big way. Also known as “Thimble Cactus,” Mammillaria gracilis fragilis is a small pincushion cactus. Its cylindrical and slender green body is densely covered by interwoven white spines. It grows in clusters, making this a stunner for the miniature garden or fairy garden. In the cooler months, you will see small, cream-colored flowers. With enough light, the Thimble Cactus can be grown indoors, and it propagates easily.

Succulent

Just as its name suggests, the Zebra Plant, or Haworthia fastigata, has handsome stripes. Fleshy, firm leaves grow out of a stemless center. This succulent is very easy to grow, only requiring well-drained soil and a sunny window. You can water it every two to three weeks. As the plant matures, you will notice offshoots from its base, though tends to be very slow growing. Fully grown, it will reach just 4-inches in height and 6 to 8-inches in spread. Since they can be grown in very small containers, Zebra Plants make popular houseplants and desk plants, as well as gifts.

Flowers

If your garden has more of a floral feel, you may want to consider a delicate white flower that will stand out among green leaves, groundcovers, and stems. Erodium reichardii is also known as Heron’s Bill. From late spring to early fall, it blooms with saucer-shaped petals that have thin, burgundy markings. Deep green, heart-shaped leaves provide contrast. Consider Heron’s Bill for small spaces, and in between stepping stones, as it grows with minimal height but impressive spread. This one will do well in rock gardens and mixed containers.

Miniature Accessories

Last, but certainly not least, gardeners can also look to miniature accessories when planning out a white and green miniature garden. Almost all plants feature green, so the backdrop color is already well established. Choose white accessories to create pops of visual interest. This could be as simple as a Mini Bistro Set nestled under leaves and vines. A White Wood Picket Fence has a similar effect, but can trail throughout the miniature garden, making quite an impact. Use it to enclose a vegetable garden, border a path, or wind around a small pond. You can even use it as an accent border around your entire fairy garden.

When you start to look closely at color in the miniature garden, the sky is the limit. Whether you have a specific theme, a mystical fairy garden, or simply a backyard getaway, color combinations like green and white can add personality and pizazz. Happy gardening!
