| From Keith Keppel catalog 2016 "BLACK LIPSTICK EM 35" ((Oreo x Hello Darkness) X (Tangled Web x (Oreo pod parent sib x Storm Track))). Glossy and dark enough to satisfy the most demanding Goth maiden. Silky black purple standards only slightly lighter than velvet-enhanced black falls. Solid dark blue beards rest on clean, unmarked hafts. Generously ruffled, the compact flowers carried on well-branched stalks. #09-104A. $50.00.
