We often select floral species from the darkest botanical palette in order to juxtapose, other times we adapt it to create great depths in designed planting schemes. These are often categorised as black and like a wardrobe staple, these deep hues are a garden design staple for us, so we thought we would dig deep and share some of these floral couture selections with you.
