A picture would help as we have no idea to which plant you are referring.

You really need to edit this post and include a picture because it's impossible to give ideas without more info, sorry.
Are the flowers on a tree, shrub or perennial ?
I've never known a plants flowers to change colour unless its a rose.

I have known plant flowers to change colour, particularly this year - seen it in lilies, roses and shade changes in particular shrubs, e.g., deep pink weigela flowers coming out mid to pale pink. But I've never heard of flowers coming out black - the others are right, we do need to know which plant you're talking about.
