    The black rose is the blackest of the black. It could not get any more black.

    At least the folks selling the "Blue Orchids" had the decency to tell you in the fine print that the next blooms will be WHITE.
    What do you do when you see an endangered animal that eats only endangered plants?

    The Drosera anglica photo they were using was from Grow Sundews, so I emailed sundewman about it.

    Don't forget to order the rainbow colored roses, too.

    Not all of them do so. Btw, in case you haven't had the displeasure, they also have other dyed colors now as well -- purple (really bad dye job on those -- even the foliage is discolored), green (and I'm talking this color of green ), ....

    The widespread ignorance on this subject is incredible to me. People seem to think that if they found it on google, then they can use it for whatever they want. I hope someone explains to the seller that this is Very Wrong ​to prevent more incidents like this from happening.

    "Blue" roses actually DO exist, they are a genetically modified variety, but they are actually more of a lavender or pale mauve color, nothing like that picture on ebay.

    I really hope nobody falls for this scam. This ebay seller is a real jerk!
