British gardens are set to turn a shade of black next summer after horticulturists developed the world's first black petunia plant.
The dramatic new flowers, named Black Velvet, were developed using natural breeding techniques to turn them a dark black colour and will be on sale at a premium price of £2-£3 per plant.
The rare plants, which have taken four years to perfect, are due to blossom in British gardens for the first time next spring.
這個稀有品種命名為Black Velvet (黑絲絨)

The petunias were developed by flower breeding company Ball Colegrave and will be going on sale for the first time in British garden centres next summer
