    Hmmm... I don't know that I have any really dark plants. But this is quite a beautiful one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Nice plant Tsonkiboy, my best guess for the blacked is ophiopogon planscarpos nigrescens. The leaves are truely black, it's hardy here in the UK and seeds around no problem (except that about 25% are green LOL). because of its colour it makes a good foil for other coloured foliage.

    Best regards

    Chris

    Somehow to me this looks very much from the alocasia family.

    Well, here's my darkest plant. I have no idea what kind it is; it started out as a stem cutting a few years ago. Maybe a 'creeping jew'? It has grown in a little pot for as long as I have had it, and branched out quite a bit. Last summer, it made little purple flowers for me while it was outside.
