It seems that someone has applied a little black magic to the name of the
AAS Selection.  It is indeed listed by the AAS as "Black Velvet Rose",
however, it is being marketed as "Black Magic Rose" in many catalogs,
including some of the sources from AAS, including Harris Seeds, Jung and
Earl May.  Stokes is another source.
