I don't think so. They are both listed in the same catalogs from
the 1970's. While both usually described as singels, they are described
as having a slightly different shade of flower. One of the catalogs
says that one of them holds the zone all year long. I wondered if
'Black Vixen' was a sport off of 'Vixen' but that is just an idea.
The only information I can find on Howard Kerrigan is reference to
him by William Schmidt in a couple of very old articles in Geraniums
Around the World. I thought there might be a mention of him when he
passed away in some magazine, but have not found it. Since Howard W.
Kerrigan was from Oakland or that vicinity and that is my birthplace, I
was especially curious!
