Tulips must come in every colour of the rainbow, including some that are
not in the rainbow, thanks to plant breeders.  I recall seeing "black" 
tulips on the grounds of Expo 86 in Vancouver, British Columbia.  In the
intense sunlight, one could tell that it was actually a very dark purple. 
I may have even taken a photograph.  Sorry, I would not have a clue how to
put it over the net.
