Here's a white version of blue monkey-flower.  They also come in pink.  Clearly, blue works best in this particular species.  I once walked past a patch of pink, figuring it was just another bunch of messed up monkeys.  I eventually figured out I was the messed up one, missing a patch of really rare winged monkey flowers.  Those hadn't knowingly been seen in Michigan in nearly a hundred years.  There are many monkey-flowers, and they come in all colors.  They show up in gardens, but are a little tricky because they mostly like consistently damp soil.
