Black Flowers - ALTERNATIVES - Part 3 of 4

As so very few "black" flowers are available as CUT STEMS for event use, the following deep red, purple, and brown flowers are used most often as their ALTERNATIVES:

Black Mini (Schwartzwalder) Calla Lilies
Available:  Year Round

Black Baccara Roses (Also: Black Magic Roses - slightly more red in color)
Available:  Year Round

Chocolate Cosmos
Available:  April-July, September-December

Fiddlehead Fern Shoots
Available:  Year Round

Painted Branches (Manzanita, Curly Willow, Birch, etc...)
Available:  Year Round

Read Part 4 of 4 for a brief review of additional flowers having black "centers," that are often used as black accents.
