From Keith Keppel Iris catalog, 2011: DARK MATTER ML 11" (Devil Baby X Panther). Maybe this corresponds to what the astronomers are talking about? There is an almost total lack of light reflection from the ruffled purplish black orbs with velvet falls. Purplish beards are tipped blackish brown at the end, and shed very little light on the subject. From a cross that produced many beautiful flowers, this was the closest to black that we've yet bloomed in a dwarf. #04-1 H. $20.00; 3 for $50.00.
