Picture of Herds of Black Pianos

Herds of Black Pianos (2015) Abbey Purple X Dakar

Tetraploid Coal black purple with a red ring around a yellow to green throat.  Red anthers.  5, 29, EV, ML, 5-6 br, 21 bc.  Branched down the scape.

The name is taken from a song I used as an audition piece for the St. Louis Symphony Chorus in 2014.  The song is "A Green Lowland of Pianos," set by Samuel Barber.

"In the evening
as far as the eye can see,
herds
of black pianos."
