20 "Black" Flowers for your Gothic Garden

Autumn is here and while most of us in the Northern Hemisphere are putting our gardens to bed for the upcoming cold season, it's never too early to start planning for Spring. In the spirit of the spooky season of Halloween and Samhain I've compiled a list of twenty black appearing flowers to consider for next year's garden. While none of these are truly black they are dark enough shades of red, burgundy and purple to give the black effect. I've included links to where you can find each variety of seeds, bulbs, corms and tubers.
