What does it mean that the only other black flower I can think of is to one of the Hoodea succulents?. Its naturally enough one of the Carrion flowers.

Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop' known as Black rose?
Or maybe Stapelia grandiflora( not exactly black) ?

There are quite a few black flowers around. I have seen black primulas, pansies, dahlias, petunias, Aquilegia, Calla Lily 'Night Cap' and probably more I do not remember.

Stapelia..that's it. There's a black Calla Lily? That sounds interesting.

They had black calla lily in every garden center this year.
I do not like black flowers. Not "girly" enough :-) I planted this hollyhock for my DH. He likes all the unusual "things".

Ha!,and what did I buy at a nursery yesterday? A Stapelia. Turns out it doesn't have a black flower..but that was on my mind.
I saw something with a black flower..told myself to report it to GOY. I cant remember what it was Klahanie..arghhhh.

The "other" Stapelia has interesting flowers as well Stan. I am always fascinated by it.
