Went to my local garden centre as a pick me up and found some beautiful black velvet petunias, I picked them up because they reminded me of my black cat's silky ears!

Now I've brought them home to my very bright, pastel potted, mainly pink and yellow garden I don't really know how or where I'm going to put them! Not that I really mind, they are truly stunning!

Are there any other lovely black and dark petal plants? It must be the inner goth in me crying out!

I've got 4 different varieties of sunflowers growing this year, 2 yellow ones and the other two are  Velvet Queen, not black but a very deep red, the other is Black Magic which is the darkest of all sunflowers.  I can't wait for them all to flower in the summer, I've just planted them all out today
