Sooty Sam is named after a black whippet dog renowed in England for the
line of racing/coursing/rabbiting dogs that have descended directly from him.
Like the whippet this introduction has dark, smoky colour going on.
Sooty Sam has pinkish/red mid ribs that really aid in showing off
the frog green gaseous looking throat.
 Sooty Sam has been instrumental in getting me
closer to the black range in hemerocallis, and many of its children
are darker than Sooty Sam itself is.
