Help Finding This Morning Glory

About 10 years ago when I lived at my old house I grew a morning glory that looked like the "Milky Way" morning glory except it was all dark purple with white 'stars'. When I started gardening again, I was unable to find it. I don't even remember where we bought the seeds, but it was from one of the major seed catalogs.
I really miss this morning glory since I loved growing it with the Milky Way morning glory giving my garden a sort of Ying and Yang look with the two types growing together.

Was it Star of Yelta?

Several of the Youjiro varieties of Ipomoea nil have dark backgrounds with white stars. Their names more often than not include the word Fuji.

Beach of Milky Way, maybe? That one has big flowers with dark blue/purple and white stripes.
