Of course, I think of so many different wine colored roses and peonies...but here are some others: Monarch's Velvet Cinquefoil (Potentilla 'Monarch's Velvet), Red Buttons Knautia (Knautia macedonica), Desmond Dianthus, Sunflower 'Chianti', Chocolate Cosmos (Cosmos atrosanguineus), Pied Piper Red Cosmos, Maroon Coreopsis, Chrysanthemum, Hemerocallis (Daylily - there are maroon varieties such as 'Jade Star', and 'Margaret Weimer'), Lychnis atrosanguinea (Rose Campion), Amaranthus gangeticus ('Elephant Head' Amaranth), Black Hollyhock (blooms are very deep burgundy), Zinnia, Double Black Poppy (deep maroon), Clematis 'Niobe', Pennisetum 'rubrum' (an ornamental grass), Dahlia, tulips, Salvia nemerosa 'Plumosa', and Helloborus Atrorubens.
