Well, you don't just plant "black roses", generally you would start with a dark colored rose (such as a dark red rose) planted in partial shade and water it (try to water as close to the center as possible) with a "root dye" (1 tsp black food coloring per 5 cups of water) once every couple of weeks. After about a month the color should start appearing in the buds.

You'll have to decide if the color is dark enough after about a month, otherwise start applying your "root dye" every week or slightly increase the amount of food coloring.

The only Black ( what growers refer to black)rose can only be grown in Halfeti, Turkey. Because of it's soils and climate on the river bank,is the only place where black rose grows in the world.It only give blossom twice a year only for fifteen days. And even still they are not a black BLACK color they are a very dark deep red/burgandy which is so dark they Appear to be black. ( Funny I found that info, BUT couldn't find any pictures from googling it to substantiate it lol
Any other roses that appear to be black has been manipulated with dyes as stated above. So In a nut shell no such thing as a TRUE Black rose. Why try to fool mother nature with dyes. zoink Just enjoy what mother nature gave us She had her reasons,, thumbup
