Your photo is lovely.

Misleading color description is one of my pet peeves. I've had several 'black' flowers that weren't. Roses are the worst for misleading color descriptions. There are no purple or blue roses except in catalog descriptions;) Not only plants, animals too. Gray cats and dogs are called blue. Roan horses are either blue or red when in fact they are neither. Really, it makes no difference, it just seems they could be accurate;)


It's a pretty velvet eggplant colored flower, for sure;-) But, not black! gail

Rothschild Orchid

Very pretty :o)


That is so pretty.

Sweet Bay

The only true black flower I've ever seen was a pansy, and quite frankly I think they look rather ghastly. lol Although perfect for Halloween or a Death Day party.

The flowers of your 'Black Panther' are making my mouth water. Such a velvety gorgeous shade of purple.

I love flowers that are labelled black because they *are* usually such a beautiful shade of dark purple. There's a few very dark red iris labelled as black too.


It really is a pretty deep purple color. It does seem that most plants labeled black end up being a very deep purple. I bought a Penstemon this summer that had the word Raven in the name, but it's about the same color as your flower.


Gorgeous color and bloom!
