I saw this plant today and learned that it is a modern cultivar of Celosia, but which one?

Can anyone identify the cultivar?

It looks like one of the 'Intenz' series of Celosia (a cutting-propagated series.) My first guess would be 'Intenz Dark Purple' but they are all similar enough in color that I couldn't say for sure. Smiling
