Halloween Decorations: Black Garden Plants

| 10/29/2009 10:22:07 AM


If you love the frightening allure of zombies and vampires, why not try a Halloween decorating scheme with the next best thing—black flowers. The somber flora in Black Plants, written by Paul Bonine who is the co-owner of Xera Plants, are far from the withered, dried image you’d normally equate with black flowers.

Instead, Bonine lists 75 species of black plants that range from distant and exotic Dracula orchids to the more familiar black hollyhocks. These flowers can add mystery and intrigue to your flower garden all year long. But most importantly, they work great for creating fabulous Halloween bouquets.
