I work on hundreds of gardens throughout the season and I have to say with 100% certainty, I don’t recall one black flower in any of them. In fact, when hired to create a garden space for a client, I never think of adding black to the landscape. Shame on me!!!
Now lately I’ve had plenty of time on my hands. (Shoulder surgery) I must say when you research black flowers, you’d be surprised to see how many different varieties are available. They even have a coleus with black foliage……… who would have thought!!!
A new Twitter friend of mine just mention Dahlia’s. Yes, they have a Black Dahlia, or as I like to call it, a very deep purple Dahlia…..but they do classify it on the list of black flowers. Tulips, roses, petunias, and pansies are also on this list, which again blows me away. In order to be considered a legitimate blogger, it’s obviously important to blog about facts. If I throw out a bunch of unfactual garbage it won’t be long before I have zero followers. With that being said I need some answers, I need to be educated. So if anybody out there has the answers please feel free let me know. My questions are as followed.
- How many actual black wild flowers are there?
- From what region are these flowers located?
- How many commonly used flowers were scientifically modified black?
- Are these black flowers maintenance protocols different?
