‘Black Pearl’ Lily

This flower really has a very deep and nice maroon color and looks really black against its ‘relatives’. The lily seems to be velvet, and it will surely decorate any garden. Not everyone knows of their existence, and the lilies can be found not very often. But you can always order the miracle in a good flower shop.


The petunia has yellow stripes diverging along its dark purple petals like the rays of light. This plant is extremely beautiful and bright.

Fritillária camschatcénsis

This flower, fairly simple in form, is very beautiful and unusual. Even being almost black it lives up to its name (hazel hen in Russian) — in good light one can see small spots on its petals. Even though it’s quite rare the plant is rather unpretentious. It can be found in many flower shops, but one should search for darker shades.


Violets are always perfect, no matter what color they are. This flower combines tenderness and beauty, and the combination is fascinating. This is a house plant requiring special attention and care. The black violets are rare but existing. They look like outlandish velvet eyes with yellow pupils.

One can find a lot of photos of black flowers on the Internet, but it is important to understand that on the pictures they look darker and more contrasting. Do not expect the same look from real tulips, roses and so on. However, dark real flowers should be appreciated for theirs ingularity and uniqueness. Black flowers can be bought in many flower shops, but some of them are more common and the others are really rare.
