Following on from the first part of my top ten yesterday, here are the final 5:
Tulips are one of the truer black flowers. Queen of night is purpley tulip that appears almost black. They are mainly available in winter and spring. Tulips look fabulous as compact bridal bouquets.
Cymbidium orchids and slipper orchids are available in black. They are a very deep shade of red. They are the most expensive black flower in my top ten list, as they are rare and only available as a special order.
3 Chocolate cosmos
Cosmos looks a little like a single dahlia. It is a delicate flower with a scrumptious vanilla and chocolate fragrance. The flowers have a chocolaty red tone and are available in summer.
There are several black roses including black baccara and black beauty. Black baccara is sumptuous deep red rose, and like all roses, it’s available all year round.
Black forest callas are my number one black flower. They are very glamorous and structural. Callas are available all year round, which makes them ideal for weddings. They are lovely in bridal bouquets.
