Ginger Clack has decided to name the it Ebony Star. It won some seedling awards at Portland at I was
able to take some more pictures. Below is a picture of it taken with the black satin head table cover
in the background. Since the dahlia is darker than the black satin, it is easily visible.  
Here is a picture of the flower taken in Roseburg. It was placed in front of a black can. Using
Photoshop the color of the black can and the color of the ray floret were sampled and then filled into
some rectangles for reference. Ebony Star is blacker than the black can.
