Black Beauties for a Gothic Garden
Gothic gardening may bring thoughts of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Victorian novels, but Gothic garden design simply follows the architectural style predominant in Western Europe during the twelve and thirteen centuries. The Victorians loved the Gothic style and revived it. It is this Victorian Gothic revival style that we are most familiar with and that we can use to our advantage to create gardens of mystery and serenity. For many years I have had a fascination with black flowers and I have built up quite a collection of beautiful and sometimes rare black flowers. Here are some of my favourites.
A Gothic garden might not be everybody’s cup of tea but elements of Gothic style can effectively be used to create secret corners and special places in your garden, displaying those hidden and often rare gems.
