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.

The buds of this rose truly are close to black in color. The deep red bloom is lovely. In my Maryland garden it does well although the flowers are never perfectly shaped.
