These always amaze me as to just how black they are. More so than any other "black" flowers I've seen.

@jeatacake they look their best on an overcast day, shows them how they really look. Too much purple on this photo that’s not visible in reality 😜

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

@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.

comment

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

3w
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 😰

3w
comment
kez001uk

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

3w
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.

3w
comment
kez001uk

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

3w
comment
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.

3w
comment
kez001uk

@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 🤣

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