Are there really Black Flowers?

Okay, so are there really black flowers?  Well, not really…the terminology “black flowers” is used loosely to refer to the darkest blooms and artificially dyed flowers. If you look closely at flowers called black, you’ll usually see that “black flowers” are such a deep purple/burgundy that they just appear black. Chocolate cosmos, which are really a dark chocolate brown, are sometimes called black flowers.  The thing is, depending upon how and when you use these flowers, they can look black.

Dark purple carnations, Black Lilies, Dark Burgundy Dahlia,Chocolate Cosmos, Dark burgundy mini calla, and dark purple tulips.  These flowers are the closest to black that I am aware of.  However, I noticed at they have some additional black flowers, such as the black vanda orchid and burgundy dendrobium orchid…neither of which I have ever seen or even heard of before writing this article.  Below are two examples of tinted flowers.



There are a few more varieties of black flowers and foliages. I have had black hollyhocks and black iris in a previous backyard.  I have used black ti leaves and agonis greenery, which is a very dark burgundy color.
