Never heard of black, brown or blue ones myself but I have been eyeing the giant ones where my Mother lives. Love the strong summer colors.

David, once the zinnia flowers are done they are pretty dark in color and look quite dry -- if that helps.

There is an article on the main web page titled 'Echinacea Spent Blooms' that shows "a black coneflower plant". Probably similar to what you saw with the black zinnia blooms. Both coneflower and zinnia blooms were spent and turned shades of brown and black. Now... if you figure out a way to actually make the blooms start black..... you probably will be able to retire wnywhere you want!!! Sticking tongue out Hurray! Rolling on the floor laughing
