Black Flowers


Technically, there are no ‘black’ flowers in nature, only very dark shades of red, purple and blue. However, the distinctive look of the ‘black’ flower has led it to become one of the most popular colour choices for arrangements and displays, particularly at Halloween. Black flowers make a particular strong statement and are associated with secrets, magic and mystery. When you’re trying to let a secret crush know how you feel, a bouquet of black flowers add a touch of wonder and enchantment to your gift. Black flowers by botanical name and common name:


Anigozanthus, Kangaroo Paw
