Not Sure About the Black Cat Petunia

I am not sure if I would like the look of the petunia "Black Cat" in my garden, however, when paired with other plants in a container, the "Black Cat" petunia just may add a lot of interest. The Burpee Company is responsible for creating the "Black Cat" petunia. The "Black Cat" petunia really is black as can be when planted in areas with full sun, however, in areas with shade, the "Black Cat" petunia may show a bit of purple on the underside of its petals. If the "Black Cat" petunia is under stress due to high heat or if it is deprived of water, it will have a bit of yellow showing on its petals. To date, "Black Cat" petunia is the blackest petunia around. "Black Cat" petunia is also called "Black Velvet." Photo: Burpee Seed Co.
Some more footage of the Black Petunias somewhere in a tiny garden in a side street in Glastonbury UK

@Corbin5 I am sure it would look nice. I planted years ago some flowers they pretended smelled like chocolate (chocolate cosmos). It was a big deception.

It's beautiful! I have never seen one of these before but would love to photograph them if I ever saw them. I think they would look amazing with other bright colors, especially my favorite.... purple!

@Corbin5 probably hard to pollinate as bees are drawn to bright colours rather than dark ones

@arthurchappell Yes, you are right about that. It is an annual so it would need to be replanted every year here.

It is lovely and unique. I once planted a black rose but it never bloimed I have to see if I find this one here. My garden has enough sun and no black blooms. It will add some contrast to all colored flowers.

Black flowers in the yard, somehow I do not like it. Somehow it's more fit for the graveyard

I think that I would probably be okay with this planted next to orange, purple or bright blue flowers. Something to give the black a bit of contrats. The flower is unique in it's own way and deserves it's own bit of spotlight.
