Well, how many flowers in blue do you want?  The list is rather long.
To name a few: Gentiana, Campanula, Iris, Blue-eyed grass, Delphiniums,
Violets, Gilia, Polemonium, Hydrophyllum, Phacelia, Veronica, Lupinus,

The blackest I have seen was spots on the bottom of the petals of tulips,
mariposa lillies, and also on Fritillaria.  --  Chris
