If you want to add drama to your garden, look no further than this dark trend. People are using black plants to create natural borders around their flower beds and sprinkle in stunning contrast.
Take a look at this list of the best boldest black plants:
Since pansies are reliable bloomers and require little work, they’re the easiest way to embrace this trend. Plant your seeds in late winter in a location with full or partial sun if you want them to blossom come spring.
2. QUEEN OF NIGHT TULIPS
Typically, pink and orange tulips are the first sign of spring. But if you’re sad to see winter go, this black variety might be more your speed. To see these flowers by March or April, plant the seeds in a sunny spot in late February.
3. BLACK NIGRA HOLLYHOCK
This plant is typically seen growing on old-fashioned cottages or along fences, but embodies a very different vibe with jet black petals. When grown in full sun and well-drained soil, these stalks can grow to be six feet tall.
4. BLACK BLEEDING HEARTS
If you thought this sad plant couldn’t get any more jarring, this black color will prove you wrong. Plant them in a shady spot and water them regularly and they’ll live a long (hopefully happy!) life in your garden
5. BLACK CORNFLOWERS
Also known as Bachelor’s Buttons, these traditional cottage garden plants make a bold statement in a claret color. This annual thrives in full to partial sun and (even better) will attract butterflies to your garden.
6. BLACK CALLA LILIES
These stunning flowers are a deep black at their base, then fade to a dark purple as the petals fan out. To see them pop up at the beginning of summer, plant your bulbs in a pot or a sunny spot in your yard in the fall.
7. BLACK MONDO GRASS
This evergreen perennial offers a low-maintenance way to make a dramatic statement in your yard. They grow to be around six inches tall and are an excellent option for a flower bed border or a rock garden.
8. BLACK SCABIOSAS
This member of the honeysuckle family is named in honor of its traditional use as medicine to treat scabies. Usually this plant has pink or purple petals, but this darker version offers a bold change and blooms in about 70 days.
9. BLACK VELVET PETUNIAS
The velvet texture of this mesmerizing flower will make it stand out amongst the rest of your plants. The best place to plant it is in a sunny location in well-drained soil after the last spring frost
10. BLACK BAT FLOWERS
The large whisker-like leaves on the front of this plant — which can grow to be 28 inches long — are what inspired this plant’s nickname. It’s also called the Devil’s Plant and is best grown in a lightly shaded plot of soil.
