You may have heard this claim before, but this Pansy truly represents one of the most impressive black flowers in cultivation today. Bushy, compact plants bearing medium sized flowers, so black they shine like velvet. Height: 15-20cm (6-8 in).
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The crystallised petals are great decorations for cakes and cookies, or they can be added straight to green salads for an injection of colour.
