Very few plant flowers are black. This flower from certain angles looks just like a bat flying through the ai r. Placed on the wall just over the fish pond it floowered well in a non sunny, but light area. It liked the humidity from the water. It overwintered well in the cool conservatory, but I brought it out too early in the spring and the frost killed it. I plan to replace it asap as its large leaves also looks good.
