Kat von D Black Garden

Do you love dark flowers? And are you ready for a unique view into the black garden of the iconic vegan beauty Kat Von D? Let her show you around, sharing her own thoughts about no less than twenty black flowers and plants! You will find great black flowers, like iris, scabiosa, sunflower, dianthus barbatus, dahlia, and even a black tulip! This is the top of black gardening inspiration from a true gothic inspirator.

Kat Von D is one of the most unique entrepreneurs of our time, and any slander on the goth goddess will not be taken lightly. As a veteran tattooist and beauty mogul, Kat changed the game surrounding art on two levels, ushering in an unseen level of elegance and poise to both mediums. For being a pillar of goth-y goodness, a business phenom, a cat mama, and a vegan icon, Kat, we salute you.

One of the more charming quirks of Kat, aside from the aforementioned, is her love of horticulture– like how can you be that beautiful, trend-setting, and have time to tend to care about your garden? Naturally, Kat can’t just be like the rest of the plant moms, differentiating herself by having a garden solely dedicated to black flowers and plants.

BLACK ADDER β€œSOOTY” FLOWER [dianthus barbatus nigrescens] πŸ–€ These black beauties are super easy to grow from seed. They come from the Carnation family but in miniature form. As you can see, mine is just now starting to blossom, but soon the entire cluster will be exploding with these little black blooms!

Black Bachelor Button Flowers. πŸ–€ I know I posted a shot of the very first one of these that bloomed a little while back, but clusters have been blooming like crazy, so I had to include these black beauties in this garden update. *and like most black plants, these guys get blacker the more sun they get. πŸ–€

Black “FloraMia Nero” vine. πŸ–€ The same family as the “black heart” vine I posted a little while back, but these guys have tiny lavender trumpets that bloom every now and then. If you can look past the lavender flowers, this vine is perfect for your black garden!
