While there are black-ish, blue-ish, and purple flowers — I would not expect those seeds to produce roses that look like those photoshopped images.

@MrsPaperFlowers:  I don’t think so. Usually when you see flowers in crazy color like that (and they’re never even as bright as those pics) is because they put dye in their water. It’s actually a cool experiment you can try at home!

There are a number of strains that give roses really exotic colorations and flower shapes. If you have a good garden store in your area, they’d be able to best recommend which would thrive in your climate. Talking to someone is key, because often those specialty varieties aren’t regularly kept in stock.
