An Immaculate trailing gown in glossy BLACK VELVET of a Princes in the Centre is what the featured image reminds me of. See how the folds rise and fall.
The cultivar Black Velvet or Trailing Petunia ( English) ,Petunia hybrida ( Scientific name) belongs to the deadly Nightshade family Solanaceae .
A cultivated hybrid of the naturally growing Petunias in South America the BLACK VELVET is the ultimate flower in the search of a PERFECT BLACK.
It is today a much sought after precious species.
Held up by a slender tube, Petunias can be seen in various colours and a combination of colours as well.
These silken black blooms of the THE BLACK VELVET Petunias are seen at various stages in the picture below.
A side profile of the tubular flowers of the Black Velvet Petunias show up tinges of the colour Burgundy in this magnificent basket of glossy velvety Midnight beauties.
The Petunias belong to the same family as Egg Plants ( do see my blog titled THE BLACK BEAUTY).
The fantastic Black Velvet Petunia was spotted in this Enchanting Greenhouse in the Himalayas at the JW Marriott Walnut Spa & Resort, Mussoorie, India.
Is it not a wonder that this Princess in the overflowing Black velvet robes belongs to the same family as Potatoes and Tomatoes ?
