Between Ink Spots and Black Baccara I would recommed Ink Spots. Both are a small, somewhat formal bloom on a difficult plant. Ink Spots is, for me, the better of the two plants as in it is absolutely disease prone but not disease ridden. Compare EITHER of these two to OKLAHOMA which gives a big, fat, smelly, lusty bloom on a "decently" resistant albeit leggy plant and equally as is "black" in my opinion and there is no comparison..........

So who is more "black" Oklaoma or InkSpots?

About the same. Oklahoma can get darker, it gets dustier and darker, it will lean more dusky purple and Ink Spots will be more red per se. Ink Spots doesn't "blue" much. Honestly? It escapes me why anyone would want a BLACK bloom on a rose or any plant. Oklahoma has scent, it smells like a ROSE. Ink Spots has no scent at all. Ink Spots was a huge FAILLLLL when released. Oklahoma should have been AARS. Ink Spots dies back, it is uneven. Oklahoma is weedy but reliable. Black Baccara can give gorgeous blooms. The blooms are usually the size of a miniature rose. And the plant is so weak. Anyone who alleges it (Black Baccara) does better than that is simply lying or is simply happy with miniature sized blooms on a large and sick plant.

Oh the "black" roses, I think 'Taboo' is the easiest, if you can ignore the minor mildew. Grows straight as an arrow. Easy to cut. Always dark and red. Good vigor. 'Black Magic' is probably the prettiest, but it has architecture issues, and seems prone to snap freezes.

The pictures don't do it justice. A much better rose than Arizona, this one holds its form throughout with a nice blend of clear peachy sunset colors. Classic urn shaped HT form with a medium strength sweet fruity fragrance, and beautiful dark shiny foliage on a robust plant with stout canes. There is some blackspot, but doesn't seem to affect plant's vigor, this rose likes the heat of SoCal with decent rebloom and the petals don't burn. I purchased this grafted eons ago at a nursery but haven't seen it around since. I still have the tough old plant but am seeking a replacement due to rose mosaic virus. In all these years it has remained at four feet tall and three feet wide with dense branching, but then again, I'm lazy and don't fertilize or spray. For some reason it's not listed in the 2015 Combined Rose List. If you see this rose for sale grab it! Deserves a much wider distribution and a place in most gardens.
