This is one of my favorite "black" irises, STARLIT VELVET (Stahly, 1991).  I 
first saw this one in my mom's garden and it was a knockout.  Then, when at 
AIS convention in Denver 2000 I saw a clump of it in someone's garden and it 
stopped me dead in my tracks.  If it had been a convention guest I would have 
voted for it for the Franklin Cook cup.  I have not seen this hybridizer's 
Baltic Star that has been discussed recently on iris talk but am wondering if 
this is similar?

Very rich in coloration, has a very "plush" texture, smouldering bronze 
beards, and that fascinating white spray pattern.   Clean foliage, good 
growth.  Toward the short end of the TB size range, never falls over.  This 
is a "keeper" in my garden.
