Dan - this is the one I'm wondering about. I suspect it MAY be Bold Knight but I could be way off base. It is actually somewhat darker than the photo shows but not as dark as Sun God. It MAY also be Night Flyer but I don't think so.

Lyn,
I would bet my eye teeth that this is Bold Knight. The raised spots are a purplish black and the bloom has full petals. If I'm not mistaken, Night Flyer has more elongated and separated petal growth. The colouring is exactly how my Bold Knight comes across. What a beautiful clump you have there, absolutely breathtaking. I'm going to check to see if I can find pics online, but I never trust colourization of bloom in catalogues.

Thanks Dan, I was thinking that it probably was Bold Knight as I vaguely recall ordering it from Hillcrest Harmony before they closed up shop. I'm a notoriously bad note keeper and either didn't keep the records or didn't write it down!

I'm fairly certain it's not Night Flyer, but it sure is pretty.
