Chocolate Flowers! October 31, 2011

So you like chocolate – the velvety, rich dark chocolate, and the milky, creamy chocolate? And you’re planning a birthday or anniversary celebration, or a wedding or event,  and want to incorporate espresso, dark chocolate, latte or mocha colors into the design?

There are chocolate flowers for you!

Chocolate Cosmos, for instance, is a velvety deep-maroon-brown that smells of chocolate, shown above. Karma Chocolate Dahlias are a deep chocolate, almost black, bloom with dark stem and dark foliage, tucked in with blue hydrangea.

Also in the dahlia family, the Chocolate Sundae features deep maroon petals with yellow centers.

Other dark textures: centers of Black-eyed Susans, Echinacea/Cone-flower, and sunflowers; and dark ti leaves; Black Magic roses; dark purple scabiosa buds.

Chocolates look great with fall colors of course, and also are popular with pinks, or with shades of blues, including Tiffany blue, and even the trendy chartreuse green or a sage green. Think of the way the fashion industry has incorporated chocolate into fall outfits or event decor, and make the same color combinations with flowers!

Be bold in your choices of color. Flowers follow fashion, and so the more a color is showing up in the fashion industry, the more that color will be grown for the floral industry.

  1. I didn’t realize they had chocolate colored flowers. The calla lilies are my favorite.
