I’m dreaming of a Gothic Garden. Black flowers only.
Our cloudy skies are seeding dreams of dark and velvety blossoms. My inner goth is pining for a pretty spot to brood.
The internet picked up on my dark desire and sent me this lovely Twitter thread on the topic of black flowers. What synchronicity!
I’ve recreated the thread here for our pleasure:
Black Persian Lilies
Black Wizard Lily
Onyx Odyssey Black Hellebore
Black Star Calla Lilies
Black Baccara Roses
Queen of the Night Tulip
Black Beauty Tulips
Raven Girl Iris
Black Burgundy Dahlias
Debonair Black Cherry Petunias
Black Velvet Petunias
Black Cherry Petunias
Black Cosmos that smell like Chocolate
Jack In The Pulpit
I’m OBSESSED with the idea of a Gothic Garden. My grandmother’s rose garden has mostly died off and left the perfect spot to cultivate these dark beauties.
After I get my Victory Garden producing, I’m going to start sourcing these exotic flowers. In the meantime, enjoy this fun little film about Gothic Ladies, old and new.
Sweet Goth kisses!
