From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967 Introducing DUSKY DANCER (Luihn). Midseason to late. 36". This could be described as a very dark black-violet-several shades darker than either parent-including the beard. But the blossoms are as romantic as the name And appear to have been fashioned from lustrous black velvet with form near perfection. Wide ruffled petals, domed standards, flaring swirling falls. Fine substance and habit of growth, with well-branched stalks and good placement of buds. DARK FURY X BLACK SWAN. No. 63-50. HC '64, '65, '66. Net $25.00. Mission Bell.
On past performance, we would pick OPENING NIGHT, but we didn't see it this year, so let's pick DUSKY DANCER. About the darkest iris available with immaculate form and slight ruffling. A sterling achievement. As with most blacks, bud-count is minimum. In Coastal California it loves to rebloom in the summer. [Joe Ghio, The Eye of the Beholder, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 43.]
