It seems especially appropriate to write about black flowers on Halloween. Given the sad nature of the festival, the saddest of floral colors, black, could certainly turn heads if you’re looking to turn your house into a haunted house. But you can actually have black flowers almost all year round if you know which ones to choose.
Most of us like bright flowers: pink, yellow, white, lavender, red, etc. But not everyone. Some reactionary gardeners seem to prefer colors that are otherwise neglected in the gardening world…especially black. Not everyone is gifted to appreciate black flowers, but for those who do, they are always a delight and they are certainly original.
