Vixen or Black Vixen

    Would love to know if anyone knows the difference between Vixen and
Black Vixen, dwarf zonals.
    'Vixen' is listed as by Kerrigan 1966, a dwarf, single pale salmon
flowers, dark foliage.
    'Black Vixen' is listed as an ornamental dwarf zonal, peacy pink
single flowers on a dark foliaged plant.  One old catalog says the black
zone holds all year.
    Wonder if anyone in the past has had these as I have acquired one
with a tag of 'Vixen' but it has the black zone.  The flower color could
vary depending on many factors, and is pretty similar in description.
    Also wonder if 'Black Vixen' is also by Mr. Kerrigan.
