The reality is, there are no truly black roses, or roses that are black, that exist in nature. Ones referred to as a black colored rose,(such as the Black Bacarra rose), are really very dark red roses.
In the language (or) meaning of rose colors, a black rose is associated with death, or hatred. The meaning can also be farewell.
Roses with the word "black" in their names, are ones with the darkest red pigmentation.
Some have buds that begin with a color so deep, they appear black, but change to deep red as the flower matures.
