Michigan Bulb offers a rose called "nearly black rose". I would love to find out what this roses true name is so I can purchase from a local greenhouse. I have searched and have not found out anything. Any info. would be very helpfull.
Strangely enough, "Nearly Black" is the actual name of the rose! I will put a link below to the listing on HelpMeFind. I doubt you'd find it locally, since it is listed as only being available from Michigan Bulb and Henry Fields Seed & Nursery.
I grow Black Magic, which is also blackish red, and I love it. Don't know how that would be in your climate, but it is commercially available.
