Sally, one very close approach is Joe Ghio's 'Starring.'  
The 'Romantic Evening' offspring include several with falls that are 
or approach black.  'Starring' is not alone, but has about as extreme 
contrast as is on the market.  I think there have been one or two 
others since its introduction also.  'Starring' does have a 
couple "cat whiskers" of very minor extent along the beard (which is 
a color I think you might find quite enjoyable).

A couple strong plusses in 'Romantic Evening' offspring include very 
wide climate adaptibility, surviving even into zones 3 and 4, and 
multiple buds in sockets, sometimes even having four in the 
terminal.  Not all do, of course, but it is a strong characteristic 
in the progeny, and a *very* desirable trait.
