The quest of the black flowers started when I came across the discovery channel about Holland and tulip gardens. Since then I always dream to have black tulip in my garden. It is like a day dream...never come true, unless I manage to build the cold house ;-(
This was the starting point of my inquiry into the realm of black plants and flowers - and indeed I was quite surprised of how many there are by now.
There are not just black tulip...there are a lots of black flowers. So interesting...then I deeply searching...at last I know I can have black flower! Rare but it is true...

|Iris chrysographes (Black night Iris)|
|Helleborus 'winter Dreams Black'|
|Arum Palaestinum (Black Calla Lily)|
They are a touch pretentious - I admit, since all black robes remind of sadness and maybe they are not very easy to get one in the garden, for me black is elegant and special, nevertheless they emanate a great deal of sophistication.
To make it short, I have many wish lists, but for the starting plant I can have orchid for the first step in my collection. May be not so many people know, there are black orchid too...not editing orchid with photoshop editor lol...it is true and real. My black orchid is on the way...currently I already have one and another one is on the way ;-)
