We at BEI are passionate about helping you create stunning landscapes. This Halloween, consider incorporating black and orange plants to achieve the perfect balance of spooky and stylish.

Black Pearl Pepper: A strikingly eerie addition to any garden, featuring dark, almost black foliage and petite, jet-black fruits, akin to darkened jewels, carry a ghostly heat.

Black-Eyed Susans: These native Midwest flowers feature bold black centers that contrast beautifully with their golden-orange petals. Perfect for adding a splash of color to your garden beds.

Black Mondo Grass: The deep black foliage of this ornamental grass provides a striking contrast against brighter plants in your landscape. It’s a surefire way to make a statement.

Black Lace Elderberry: Stunning, lacy foliage with pink blooms; a bewitching combination.

Prairie Dodder: This parasitic vine that has orange twining vine that lacks leaves, thus needing zero water. It sucks water and nutrients from the host plants. Each tendril has suckers. The vine can grow to 7 feet before it strangles and smothers the host plants. It’s also known as devil’s guts, strangleweed and witch’s hair. We do not recommend this plant!

Orange Butterfly Weed: Attract monarch butterflies while enjoying the radiant orange hues.

Orange Daylily: Set your garden ablaze with the fiery allure of Orange Daylilies. Like flickering flames in the darkness, these low-maintenance beauties burst forth in a blaze of vibrant color.

Bleeding Tooth Fungus: Also called Devil’s Tooth, secretes a red liquid that resembles blood. With spikes and a bitter taste that makes it inedible, this fungus belongs on any scary plant list.

Whether you’re looking to spruce up your garden or simply appreciate the beauty of the season, Balanced Environments, Inc. is here to support your landscaping journey.

Happy Halloween, and may your landscapes be enchanting!
