Black buds - flowers in our garden

black gladioli bud

A while ago I planted these gladioli bulbs in a tonne of colours to brighten up the front of our little house.
Little did I know that some of the buds would look JET black.
It was so pretty I had to get some pictures.

As you may guess, the flowers were actually dark purple when they opened a couple of days ago.

There are also hot pink and yellow flowers, and some coral-peach ones that haven't opened yet.
These are the first flowers I've actually bought as bulbs and planted and grown myself - can't wait for them all to bloom. I just hope I don't kill them!

  1. Very cool. In Texas our state flower is the bluebonnet, which is kind of cool because rarely do you see truly blue flowers. Black flowers are a whole 'nother story though! ;)
