Gothic Garden - Black Flowers

by lakeerieartists

A new trend in gardening is creating a gothic garden with mystical garden statues, and black and deep purple flowers.

With the introduction of gothic clothing and other gothic trends, a new trend in gardening is creating a gothic themed garden including black flowers, deep purple flowers, and gothic figurines, accessories, and statues.

A gothic garden can contain a mix of perennials and annuals that add new dimensions to the traditional pastel or brightly colored garden. These flowers are becoming more and more popular, and each year new ones come on the market. Here are just a few of the black flowers available for your garden.

Black Cat Petunia

Black Cat PetuniaThe Black Cat Petunia has a velvety texture and mixes well with other petunias.  They can make a nice border for other petunias or stand alone.  They are about eight to twelve inches high, and like full sun.

Petunias are an annual flower. Blooms last about ten weeks and are drought-resistant and disease-resistant.  These work well in a hanging basket.

Centaurea, Black Sprite PPAF

Black SpriteThe Centaurea, Black Sprite PPAF, has a very spidery appearance.  It almost looks like there are fingers coming from its center. It is delicate in appearance, which is in contrast to many other black flowers.

This flower is a perennial, and grows well in moderate to warm temperatures. It has very striking purple/black blooms with a spider-leg appearance.The plants are compact with silvery green foliage. This is part of the daisy family and grows well in full sun.

It grows about a foot high.

Onyx Odyssey Hellebore

Onyx Odyssey HelleboreThe Onyx Odyssey Hellebore blooms with a very unique double bloom.  It looks like one bloom is layered on top of another. The stunning flower is an intensely dark purple-black, with glossy deep green to purple-black foliage.

Hellebore is a good ground cover and is deer-resistant.  This flower is a perennial that likes full shade or part sun. It grows 18 to 24 inches and blooms in the spring.


Black Star Calla Lily

Black Star Calla LilyThe Black Star Calla Lily is very gothic looking.  These are not truly black but actually a dark purple color.  These flowers work well in container gardening, floral arrangements, and borders in a garden.

This flower is an annual which likes full and part sun.  The bloom is deep purple with a spathe that is almost black, and the foliage is light green, spotted with red tips.

These grow 18 to 20 inches in height, and are very majestic looking. These Calla Lilies last about eight weeks.

I did not know flowers, or at least those that are not dead, could be black.

I have always enjoyed the color depth of deep purple-black flowers. That petunia is a beauty!

These are so beautiful, I love black flowers. I think the gargoyles are a great choice for a Gothic garden.

Black flowers are unusual, and folks who are into Goth, Monster High, Zombies and such, and who garden, can make a garden to feature their style!
