As its name has indicated, this flower will cover your garden in a tri-color blanket: yellow in the edges, red petals, and the brown center.
You can’t find any more detailed introduction about blanket flowers than this. Watch this video:
When it comes to brown flowers, there’s no way I can skip cattleya velutina with its brownish petals and green veins running along, truly a work of art!
Cattleya Angerei (Laelia Angereri) (Spring)
Unlike its relative, this cattleya flower doesn’t have broad petals. Instead, these five petals are more pointed. This angerei is a nice accompaniment for any bouquet or floral design.
Charlie Brown Orchid
Right from its name, you may have already known this orchid is brown. But depending on the light and soil condition, your Charlie Brown may have its own brown shade. Some can be more yellow, while others lean on the burgundy side.
Boat Orchid (Cymbidiums)
For those who wonder about this orchid’s name, that’s because of its curved petal shape, which resembles a boat. Also, its color isn’t entirely brown, but more like a mixture between yellow and peach.
Antler Orchid (Dendrobium Discolor)
If you haven’t heard of antler orchids before, it’s just fine because this orchid variant is quite rare. Its color range is pretty vast, from light brown to dark chocolate, suitable for all your needs. Paying attention to picking appropriate orchid fertilizer is all you need to do.
Chocolate Orchid (Oncidium Sharry Baby)
It’s not an orchid made of chocolate but a real orchid with a dark brown color. And the surprising thing is while the upper petals are brown, the lower ones are white, creating a nice contrast for your garden.
Brown Dahlia (Cool)
You may see dahlia in various colors: red, pink, orange,… But have you met a brown one? Most of the time, it won’t be all brown, but more like a rusty orange or bronze-red tone.
Nowadays, daylilies don’t only have traditional colors but also earn many other tones, resulting from hundreds of crossbreeding. And among several brown varieties, my favorite is the “Hemerocallis”, with a light brown shade that shines beautifully under sunlight.
Japanese Arisaema (Japanese Cobra Lily)
I bet not many of you have met or known about this exotic flower. This blossom looks more similar to a tube with deep brown petals surrounding a white spadix.
Charlie Brown Rose (No Winter)
Rose for a gift? I promise you, this classic choice will never get old, especially if you liven things up with this Charlie Brown rose. Not only is its color a surprise, but this variant doesn’t have any thorns, which makes it even more fitting as a present.
Soleil d’Or Rose
If Charlie Brown rose’s color is not light enough for you, why not this Soleil d’Or variant? With a color mix of orange, peach, and brown, you won’t feel your yard too dark anymore.
Graham Thomas Austin Rose (Summer)
You like having tea parties in your garden, right? Then, plant this Graham Thomas Austin rose right away! Its fragrance will be an amazing accompaniment to your tea.
Is Graham Thomas Austin the best rose in the world? Your answer is right here!
If you want to add some bizarre aesthetics to your garden, I’d be glad to introduce you to this Scadoxus Membranaceus. Don’t mistake the spathes for the petals, the real flower is what you may think of as nectar.
Just one brown color may sound a bit boring. How about adding some white for a light contrast in your garden with this calanthe orchid? These two colors don’t oppose too much. In fact, they even complement each other.
Brown Flowering Tobacco
I don’t know why this flower is called “Tobacco” or “Nicotiana” (the botanical one), but some say its brown color reminds them of smoke.
However, the truth is flowering tobacco comes in various shades of brown, from bronze “Hot Chocolate” to richer ones like “Chocolate Smoke”.
Brown Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus Rosa)
When hearing “tropical”, you’d usually think of vibrant colors like red, yellow, orange,…, right? But this tropical hibiscus also appears in a brown tone. What’s better than having this flower for your summer garden?
Brown Absalon Tulip
Just like roses, the tulip is an indispensable name in any flower list. And this Absalon tulip will be a classic adornment for your yard, library, or living room.
Echibeckia ‘Summerina Brown’
This Echibeckia really livens up to its nickname with the dark brown petals and orange edges, reminding people of summer light. Not to mention, its center cone looks like charcoal from afar.
Brown Gladiolus (Sword Lily)
Among other gladiolus varieties, this one fancies me the most with the light brown color with a hint of red at its edges. As sword lilies can grow quite tall, make sure to make some space for them in your garden or house.
It may be called “allspice”, but it smells like chocolate. That’s enough reason for you to grow some of this plant in your garden, right? However, remember that Carolina allspice doesn’t like too much water or sunlight.
Nothing is more charming than a beautiful flower that’s easy to grow. With little care, rudbeckia surely provides nice blossoms every year.

Here comes an exotic brown name to relieve you from the bore of seeing the same old flowers. If you’re ready to have this piaranthus, make sure to spend your evening in the yard to enjoy its sweet scent.
Brown Globe Thistle
These globe thistles are so easy to grow that if you don’t want your garden to be covered in them, you should cut some before they get to seed.
Angel Amber Kiss Pansy
