Top Ten Most Famous Yellow Flowers

Have you ever thought of gifting a black flower bouquet on any occasion? In general, people think that black is associated to sadness, mourning and grief representing evil and mystery. There are no truly black flowers in nature unless produced by the scientific methods of pigmentation. The flowers we believe to be black are in fact the darkest shades of deep red, purple, burgundy, plum etc. We cannot imagine a flower bouquet or flower arrangement with completely black flowers as it looks very dark and deadly. However, black being the darkest of all tints goes well with other hotter colored shades like dark red ‘Lucifer’ crocosmia or deep orange Mexican sunflower. Even though black seems to be an unusual choice, if you choose these flowers as the central theme, they make a strong impression and great contrast in any occasion.

Symbolism and meaning of black flowers

Right from the Victorian and Edwardian times, people thought black flowers as a symbol of fantasy, elegance, sophistication, power and formality. It is not a good idea to present black colored flowers to loved ones as it convey the message of "breaking up" or "goodbye". There are many versatile meanings associated with black flowers – both positive as well as negative. While black is the symbolic beauty of unhappiness and death, it also represents the meaning of courage and resistance. For some, these flowers indicate the inspiration for new things or a major transformation towards the direction of life.

Use of black flowers

  • Black colored flowers are unique, unusual and make other colors standout very clearly. Since black is the color of mourning and sorrow, mostly people used it to symbolize the end of a relationship, loss of a loved one, or to show the death of old habits. Now-a-days people are also using black colored flowers for all kinds of events including weddings because of their unique and elegant look.
  • Being the most unusual color, black brings a touch of mysterious and gothic feeling wherever they are used. Whether it is a Halloween arrangement or a wedding reception, black flowers add a dramatic impact and bring elegance that will make your occasion memorable for ages.
