The color burgundy is rich and enticing, with an air of mystery and hidden depths to it. It is definitely not a color to be taken lightly. It makes an impact in floral arrangements and in gardens blessed with burgundy flowers.
It’s a deep, dark maroon with higher levels of purple and brown undertones. There are some types of black flowers that are burgundy when you look at the flowers against sunlight. The cooler the climate where a burgundy variety grows, the darker the shade of burgundy it gets.
Burgundy blooms are associated with luxury, passion and sophistication. They work well in festive fall tablescapes for Thanksgiving, especially alongside apples, berries, and other fall fruits.
Of course, such a passionate color is often desired at weddings and other celebrations, because the richness of burgundy is like sipping fine wine.
It makes life seem that much more multi-layered and intense.
Let’s look at some burgundy blooms!
Burgundy Iceberg Rose
Where rose flower arrangements are concerned, there is a magnificent range of colors to choose from. The shrub rose Burgundy Iceberg belongs in the Floribunda class of roses.
This rose has a medium intensity burgundy with a deep pink hue to it, especially in the more central petals.
Burgundy Wine Anemone
Anemones are circular blooms, with fragile petals surrounding a black center. The center is filled with fuzzy florets and this adds dimension and interest to the bloom.
The petals can be a rich burgundy with deep indigo undertones or move more towards a deep blue purple.
Burgundy Seeded Eucalytpus
This is not a natural color for Eucaplypus, but is Seeded Eucalyptus sprayed with Design Master Color in burgundy. It really does have an impact and works well alongside other burgundy flowers in a floral arrangement.
Burgundy Wine Ranunculus
These truly gorgeous flowers, also known as Persian Buttercups, have cup-shaped blooms with intricate layers of thin petals that appear to swirl out the center.
The petals have a sultry shade of burgundy with red and purple undertones. The overall effect is moody in a passionate and alluring way.
Burgundy Hybrid Lily
This wonderful, glossy lily has multiple blooms per stem. The sheen and the shape of the petals makes for a rather startling beauty that will certainly grab attention.
Vixen Mini Gerbera Daisy
Being a daisy, there’s a dark eye to the bloom. These Vixen Mini Gerbera Daisies have deep burgundy petals in a nice regular format. A charming bloom that carries the burgundy hue well.
The flowers are large and delightfully burgundy; tending more to the purple side of burgundy. The color may vary depending on time of the season. Hydrangeas love water and easily wilt in humid conditions.
To revive them, take the stems and put them upside down in a bucket of clean water overnight. Their love for water means cut hydrangeas work best with a water source and won’t thrive in floral foam arrangements.
Burgundy Cymbidium Orchid
With several deeply colored, large blooms per stem this is a stunner of a blossom. It has been considered an aphrodisiac, largely because it has such a distinctive look about it.
It certainly is a sexy little number that adds pizazz to gardens and floral arrangements.
This blossom has a definite romantic look to it and is available in beautiful soft colors. The flowers are sensitive to bacteria building up in their water source, so ensure that vases are clean and the water fresh if you have cut blooms of this gorgeous plant.
They don’t do well in floral foam arrangements because they need a direct water source.
Velvet Wine Dahlia

There are single and double-flowering Freesias and many varieties have a pleasant light fragrance.
The Burgundy Freesia looks fragile and really should not be knocked or touched too much. The simple design, rich burgundy petals and yellow center make this a very eye-catching plant.
