Flowers you will NOT see growing in my yard

There are all sorts of fun things blooming in my yard.  And more to come.  But I have noticed a few flowers that we will not be bringing home.

First: the weird


Seriously, this flower thing looks like it’s an alien. 


At least that one has a pretty color to it.  Unlike this one, that has nothing to recommend it.  Meh.


Or these, which look like a goth plant person went crazy in the plant lab…such a waste of potentially pretty flowers!


These lilies which in their regular colors (white or yellow) are divine, but this variety was almost black.  Blech.

This has been a public service announcement brought to you by someone who cares that you have nice looking flowers in your yard.

  1. I've always been been bemused by the search for a black flower. You'll find it in all the plant catalogs, with headings like, "Finally! A nearly-black rose!" or "The first truly black Dahlia!" I always shake my head. Why? Why not pink, or yellow, or pink AND yellow? Search for something worth finding, folks!

    1. Or blue! Make a nice blue one! You're absolutely right--not worth finding!!
