Black Hope (Austin,'63) was black enough to merit the name but described as
having deep mulberry standards and velvety mulberrry-black falls with 1 1/2"
horns. The pod parent was a horned seedling (sorry, I don't recall its
description) and the pollen parent was Sable Night (one of the best "black" TBs
of its day, IMO).
