Halloween Hues, Shapes, and Stems for Spooky Season

In the shadowy world of Halloween, where the supernatural takes center stage, even flowers can be a source of spooky season delight and fright. At Billy Heroman’s Flowers, the leading florist in Baton Rouge, LA, we’ve gathered a collection of blooms that are as terrifying as they are tantalizing. From their sinister appearances to their bewitching symbolism, these flowers are the perfect addition to your ghostly celebrations. Explore a garden of horrors and bouquets for your own haunted house that thrill as much as they chill.

Proteas From Another Realm

Proteas are like the captivating but haunting characters you’d find in a gothic novel, undeniably beautiful but with an edge of menace. Their blooms are a grand and sensational spectacle in themselves, like something from a faraway, mystical land or otherwordly realm. According to Greek mythology, proteas were named after Proteus — Poseidon’s elusive, shape-shifting son. They truly capture the essence of transformation, exhibiting an astonishing array of colors and shapes that make them the floral embodiment of Halloween itself.

Marigolds Have Potent Spiritual Energy

Marigolds are a paradox in petals—vibrant, sunny, warm, and cheerful yet imbued with potent spiritual energy. Utilized in celebrations and ceremonies, most notably in Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead rituals, assisting in the creation of a beautiful bridge between the living and the dead. Their symbolism also extends to darker emotions like jealousy, cruelty, and despair, making them an enigmatic choice for Halloween decor. Think of marigolds as the spiritual multitaskers of the flower world, offering a rich, complex vibe to any spooky setting.

Oxblood Dahlias Add a Dark Intensity

As poetic as a haunted love story and as complex as a vintage mystery novel, oxblood dahlias bring to life the dark, rich, and intense tones of Halloween. Their crimson blood hue evokes both the passion of life and its inherent fragility. With blossoms as complex as the plot of a supernatural thriller, they’re a physical manifestation of the mysteries of transition, whether seasonal or from life to the afterlife. By incorporating these dahlias into your decor, you’re adding a striking symbol of life’s ever-changing narrative.

Spider Mums Resemble Creepy Crawly Creatures

Spider Mums, with their long, curling petals, look like they’re crawling right out of a spooky storybook. With symbolism tied to remembrance, transition, and immortality, it makes sense that spider mums have been used to honor our ancestors and even shine a light on the spirit world. These arachnid-like flowers are also believed to be talismans, having the ability to protect us against evil forces.

Deep Purple Calla Lilies Add Mystery and Elegance

Dark purple calla lilies serve as ambassadors to the ethereal world, with their bell-shaped blooms carrying the whispers of changing seasons and life cycles. In some cultures, their elegant velvety plum hue honors the dearly departed and reminds us of life’s fleeting moments. Calla lilies spark curiosity, setting us on an exploration of spiritual and seasonal mysteries.

From creepy and captivating to eerie and elegant, Halloween and autumn blooms from Billy Heroman’s capture the spirit of the season and transform your home into a haunted haven.
