Speaking as one that has a large number of years of writing on 
stakes, the only material that will not fade in the sun and weather 
is a carbon based black ink or crayon. Not just any black but it has 
to have a high carbon content and the ability to stick.

I have found that many ordinary black colored inks are not colorfast 
and fade as fast as the colored ones.
