you might also want to try salvia discolor (small shrubby perennial with black flowers and silver accented leaves), Astelia chathamica (a silver phormium looking plant, so silver that I've been asked if I spray painted it), voodoo lilies and black taro. The last two are more tropical so you might want to check the zones on the varieties that interest you. Also, university and botanic garden plant sales are a great place to pick up unusual black flowers. Best of luck!
