Asiatic Lily "Black Pearl"

Have been looking forward to seeing this, and it hasn't disappointed! Can look at it for hours. The colour changes with the light, from almost black, to dark maroon, to a dark chocolate brown.

Today, another 2 blooms appeared, and were definitely very dark 90% cocoa chocolate brown, but try as i might, all pics come out making them look purple. :-))

Easily available, I should think, as most GCs here have had them this year. Taylors bulb packs, £2.49 for 2 bulbs. Each bulb of ours is producing at least 4 flowers.
