It's looking fantastic Kerry🖤🖤🖤 Pansies tend to fizzle out after 1 or 2 flowering, but this seems to be improving. Let's hope it continues 👍

Really lovely. Most black flowers almost always have a bit of sheen that it really is purple! This is sexy!!

They are wonderful. I grew them from seedlings last year. Picked up some seeds to try so I have more plants this year. Great photo too, black not easy to get high photographic definition. Beautiful.

@KariSamuel I had black petunias like that, were just incredibly dark purple. These can have a hint right in the centre but the rest of the petals are chalkboard black

@Annettenoosa i hope the seeds do well for you ☺️ I bought this as an established plant, hadn’t seen anything like it before! It’s a terrible colour to capture so thank you for your kind words ☺️

@ublaszko 🤣 you knew what I’d say! Think pansies are lovely when they look good. Can be an eyesore when they’re not at their best. 🤣 nope they’re the exact opposite but they’re beautiful in their own way 😁

They look great around my peonies and add colour while I'm still waiting for the peonies to mature.

@ublaszko shocked how fast peonies grow! They shoot up in no time!

comment
ublaszko

Mine have shot up in November and January 😅😅 I got them as bareroot plants last year so I think it will be at least 3 years before they flower and that's if I planted at the correct depth 😰

@ublaszko oh I got mine last year as bare roots too! I figured they’d flower this year 😫

comment
ublaszko

I don't think they will flower this year. Peonies take on average 3 years to establish and flower. I'm going to be delayed even more because we're planning to move this year.

@ublaszko that’s so disappointing 😔 2020 is the year of the peony then! Well maybe 2021 for you 🤪

ublaszko

Well, get some pansies to plant around them 😁😁 It's a long time to wait but on the other hand once they flower they survive for many many years and get better each year. A lot of other perennials are quite short-lived. 5 years and they're done. Wallflowers last only about 3-5 years.

@ublaszko I let pansies self seed all over so they’re slowly making their way down the garden 😂 might make the peonies by time they flower 🤣

@gjones it’s so much darker than the petunia and pansies I have. All but for a tiny purple centre it’s like a chalkboard!

It's quite something! Usually when you see 'black' flower it's sort of brown or purple or burgundy but this is truly black. 👍
