    Go to the deep of a jungle where there isn't much sun and you may find some brown flowers.

    Cosmetics don't look well on anything brown and generally scare insects away.

    Brown is more of a dark orange than a particular color of its own. Flowers tend to be bright to be more visible and attractive to pollinators.

    There are brown flowers. They're usually fly pollinated.

    They might not attract the pollinating insects and birds to help with fertilization.

    In the wild there are all sorts of brown flowers. ... Yet brown is an unusual color in the flower garden for the same reason. For centuries (or millennia) gardeners have tried to breed, hybridize, or mutate flowers into increasingly vibrant shades of pink, purple, yellow, orange, red, white, and blue.

    Brown has no attraction to bees. Natural selection.

      Bees aren't the only pollinators. Some flowers self-pollinate, and other animals include beetles, flies, butterflies & moths, birds, and bats.
