While talking about flowers, black is the last color to come to our mind. Black flowers are impossible to find in nature; they are actually darker shades of purple, red, or maroon.
Therefore, black flowers you might find are either dyed to look black or were genetically modified.

Black is considered to be an elegant and very formal color, and evoke many emotions, but fluorography has another say in the meaning of this color.

Black roses, for example, represent a tragic romance and the melancholy that comes with. They can also refer to strength, mystery, power and uniqueness.
Black flowers can also mean rebirth and new beginnings in some situations, referring to the death of bad habits or the end of a regretful experience.

Black flowers send also a message of revenge and hate.
