"Notice the deep black veins compared to regular yellow sunflowers who's foliage is a solid green. Can't wait till these black sunflowers bloom!"

Look at how tall these black sunflowers can get!

According to Kat, these babies grew about a foot in two weeks.

And then, after a few weeks... POW! The mammoth black sunflower finally bloomed! "As she grows, her petals will become an even richer black."

Did you ever think you'd be so invested in a flower? ME NEITHER.

Kat posts pictures of her black sunflowers often, because in her words "These black beauties never get old!"

As Von D captioned the photo of this black-hearted sunflower, #natureisrad.

Hell yeah it is.

"Pennie Blacks, also nicknamed 'Baby Black Eyes.' These flowers were popular amongst the Victorians, and are extremely easy to grow."

"Like most of the plants in my garden, I grew these sweet little babies from seed, and they just now started to bloom this week!"

She LOVES how tiny the Baby Black Eyes flowers are — "This bloom is the size of a pea!"

"Black Clear Crystals Viola Pansy. This type of pansy is known for its clear color [without any blotches or markings] — pretty much the blackest of pansies."

And after recent rain, "These ladies are popping up like crazy and partyin’!"


She also grows black petunias. "These have to be one of my favourite black blooms. The Black Cat variation of this flower is by far the blackest I have ever seen and are softer than velvet."

This yet-to-blossom darling is called the Widow's Pincushion. "One of my personal faves from the garden. This one is about to bloom its needle-like petals any day now."

Kat even has black calla lilies — "the black funeral flower."

"I have an entire section in my garden where I planted countless bulbs to eventually create my very own black calla lily lake! But this little guy is the first to come up!"

And what would spring be without a black hyacinth? Especially one called — not even kidding — "Dark Dimension"?

"This sturdy little star is about to sprout straight into the sky, yielding a stock of thick, black trumpets. Once in bloom, this plant is a favourite of butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds!"

This black hyacinth finally bloomed — and as predicted, it's a showstopper.

But that's not all. According to Kat, her black garden also contains "black sunflowers, tulips, petunias, pansies, calla lilies, columbine, cosmos, desert roses, pennies, coleus, carnations, dahlias, morning glories, nasturtium, holly hocks, peony, elephant ears, green/black wizards and more — all of which are about to bloom!"

She also says there are black tulips on the way this spring.

I think I speak for everyone when I say I WANT TO SEE THEM ALL RIGHT NOW.

Kat's all-black garden is proof that she's the most Extra goth queen who ever lived — and we love her for it.

Bow down, everyone. You're not ~truly~ spooky until the very flowers in your garden as as dark as your soul.
