Hello Darkness surpasses all other dark Iris both in flower size and in the sheer degree of its black color. See the absolute uniformity with which the obsidian purple-black tones are applied. Each ruffled petal has stiff substance and enjoys a rich velvety texture. Strong stems yield three good branches bearing 6-7 buds.
