Black Velvet by Sherstin Schwartz

I picked out these roses for my father to give my mother for Valentine’s Day. They’re such a deep red color and the petals are velvety…almost black.

I love those type of roses.

I used a really low white balance when I shot this to give it a more bluish tone.


I’m a floral designer by trade and a vigilante by night. I love noticing small details in objects. I hope you enjoy what you see here!

    Gorgeous macro of this beautiful rose! I love the almost-black ones, too. I looked for some to plant, but could never find quite the right color.

  • Thank you! I would love to grow them too and I can never find them either!
