About Our Black Orchid
1888Orchids.com is proud to have this black orchid available year around. We grow three varieties of orchids - all of them are Phalaenopsis types: 1) Phalaenopsis Ever spring Prince "Black Bird," Phalaenopsis Ever spring Prince "Black Eagle" and Phalaenopsis Ever spring Prince "Black Jack." The flowers on all these orchids are black or a very dark maroon. At first glance, the orchid definitely appears black. The buds are usually black with a mixture of green so the buds look black and slightly gray. The flowers are waxy and hard to the touch. We combine our orchids with either a black pot or planter and black bamboo. The result is a very special orchid gift.

More Information About Black Orchids
One of the darkest black orchids I have seen was a freak of nature. The name of the orchid is Paphiopedilum Astro Boy (Makuli x rothschildianum). This is a rare lady slipper orchid but it is not a black orchid. The flowers of this lady slipper type orchid resemble Paphiopedilum St. Swithin but this orchid was definitely black. Here is a picture of the orchid.

Black Orchid April 14, 2008
Reviewer: David Bowman from San Diego, CA United States  
I have ordered orchids from you in the past but my last order was of a black orchid and it is still in bloom and I came back to your web page to look to see if you still had it and I am writing a comment to tell you how happy I am with this orchid.  It is really black and it came in a black pot just like you show.  I like anything black and this is a truly a great gift.  I like it a lot.
PS I will stop by to see you some day.
