What colors are not found in flowers?
I think that every color is represented by flowers of various species (kinds).

I am not a botanist, but it seems to me that flowers come in all
colors, although there seems to be fewer species that have blue coloration.
In addition, some flowers have "colors" in the infrared and ultraviolet.
Pollinating insects can "see" these, but we humans cannot.
