One of darkest roses, this rose has black buds before it blooms into velvety garnet flowers.
Perhaps darkest, this blackberry colored rose also tends to be blacker before its blooms begin to open into velvety textured petals, growing up to four feet tall with flowers June through August.
This small flower begins as a burgundy bud and opens into an almost black velvet bloom.
The "black roses" should be grown in sunlight, but be attentive to potential sunburn problems. If you plan to make bouquets from your garden and are looking for something a bit darker, try adding a touch of black dye to water in your vase.
