What Flowers are used for Halloween?
1) The traditional flower of Halloween is Black Dahlia
Black Dahlia flowers are often one of the first thoughts that come to mind when thinking about spooky plants. These spooky blooms come from the Black Dahalia (Dahlia coccinea) and their deep purple stems and blood red petals scream 'Halloween' for sure. When used as an arrangement or even a simple bouquet, these Halloween plants are sure to terrify your guests as they leave your door.
The trick is to balance the flowers with some light ones so as not to be too overwhelming and allow the black dahlias to take centre stage where they belong! Feel free to try any of these eight arrangements this Halloween!
2) Succulents Are Perfect Plants For The Holiday
Succulents make excellent plants to decorate the inside and outside of your home for Halloween. They are dark and spooky looking, come in a variety of shapes and sizes, can be planted indoors or out, require very little water or maintenance, and look great all year long. Although they might not seem like they would go with your spooky decorations at first glance, succulents really offer you that edgy feel that Halloween is all about.
Peonies are classic flowers for Halloween arrangements because of their deep red colouring. Though you should know that as the peony ages, the stems get tougher, so try to get fresher ones when possible.
Depending on what mood you want to set, use different types of flowers like coxcomb chrysanthemums or even black-eyed Susan’s. For those who don’t know how to create floral arrangements themselves, an online tutorial is a great place to start.
4) Hydrangeas and Jack-o'-Lanterns
It's about time to think about Halloween, and you want to be on top of things. If you're looking for a spooky flower arrangement this season, consider using hydrangeas as part of your spooky-licious decor.
They work well because they come in all shapes and sizes. To up the scare factor, simply pick pumpkin flowers to use as a filler and let your guests find their way through the cornfield. Or tie some branch cuttings around them for extra effect.
5) Miniature Pumpkins as Potting Trays
Who says your pots and pans are limited to cooking in the kitchen? Miniature pumpkins can be used as makeshift potting trays for your fall flowers. They make for a cute Halloween decoration that will help spook your guests when you carry them through the house. Keep in mind, that if you plan on putting a live plant inside the pumpkin, you'll need to punch some holes in it first!
6) Fall Foliage Grows From Seeds
Halloween can be the perfect excuse to gather up a pumpkin or two. A jack-o-lantern isn't just for your porch, it's also a great place to use different types of Halloween pumpkins for your table arrangements. The most spooky flowers for Halloween are calla lilies because they look like devil horns in tall vases that stand ominously on a sideboard or buffet.
If you're hosting a Halloween party this year, think about having at least one large centrepiece with one of these skull-shaped beauties as the star attraction. Add some mossy potting soil and some dead leaves around them and voila! You have an amazingly spooky Halloween bouquet!
7) Herbs (for example rosemary, thyme, and lavender)
Pumpkin are an iconic Halloween accessory, but they're not the only spooky veggie out there. Halloween offers a world of opportunity when it comes to creating an ornate bouquet of Halloween flowers. Herbs provide a great opportunity for Halloween Decors - including rosemary, thyme, and lavender - which can be sprinkled among your regular bouquet for that extra element of spookiness.
8) funeral flower
Funeral Flowers, or in Latin funeraria are for obvious reasons great Halloween flowers. These white flowers with yellow accents are shaped like drooping willow branches and symbolize a farewell to life and all its struggles.
9) Passion Flowers
Another great Halloween flower is passion flower, otherwise known as its Latin name, Passiflora. Its pale pink buds open to reveal delicate orange petals and a wispy white centre, creating a stunning contrast that’s perfect for celebrating all things scary.
