I suppose what I do might be considered 'cheating' but a piece of black felt behind the flower works for us. We keep some with us, as well as an 'emerald green', light tan and a white piece of felt along with a couple of clips (paper clips or clothes pins) to hold the felt in place if needed.

You can also do it with flash. Using a low ISO, a smaller apeture and using a faster shutter speed. Just make sure you don't go any faster than the sync speed of your camera.

i like to find a flower that is in open shade and maybe some green leafs around it so that a little underexposure and some ps work should do the trick i'm also shooting in b&w

The other obvious and convenient way photographers use often is post-processing. You could use Photoshop or other such software to change the background layer.

Start by underexposing so that the background is nearly dark. Then in editing pump up the exposure on the flower only with Lightroom or Photoshop. Most of my floral work is underexposed to start with to make color rich.
