Plant the best black flowers for a striking goth garden
Black might not be the first color that comes to mind when you envision your dream garden, but black flowers are winning their way into gardeners’ and florists' hearts alike. While the color black is often associated with death and goodbyes, the color also symbolizes power, mystery, and elegance–it all comes down to your perspective.
Dramatic goth gardens are becoming more and more popular, and themed black gardens need not be all gloom and doom (although they definitely can, if that’s your thing). Pair heat-loving summer annuals with the cool-season perennials and reblooming flower bulbs to cultivate a unique plot that can’t help but draw garden visitors’ interest and intrigue.
Extensive collection of black flowers for year-round blooms
Plant a variety of focal flowers for staggered flowering all season long. Pair Black Parrot Tulip Bulbs with fall-planted Black Ranunculus Bulbs for dramatic early season blooming, and follow up these dark displays with Double Black Poppy seeds and Grenadin King of Blacks Carnation seeds for midsummer color. Be sure to order a few striking Rip City Black Dahlia bulbs to grow alongside spring-planted Night Rider Lily Bulbs for a readily available supply of cut flowers from summer to the first frost.
Pair black flowers with other flowers for dramatic effect
Who says you only have to plant black flowers? Black flowers provide a striking contrast in the garden when planted alongside lighter-toned flowers. Incorporating blue, yellow, and red flowers into your garden will help ensure that the darker-colored beauties will get pollinated, too.
Black flowers are really a trick of the eye–these dark beauties are actually maroon, or wine, or another deep shade of red or purple that actually appears black in comparison to everything else. Play up the striking effect by pairing ebony-colored gems like Black-Flowered Siberian Iris with Monet's Garden Mix Gladiolus Bulbs or Blue Columbine Seeds.
