I've never used the zar filler as I avoid water based fillers. If you could get Famowood solvent based filler in ash color I think it would work for you.

Another option if it is too light you could mix your own color by adding a universal tinting color to the putty before it is applied. If you could post a picture of the stain color I could give you a clue which color pigment to add to the putty.

MinWax makes a "Stainable wood filler" in a yellow plastic tube. About $10. It works reasonably well filling small cracks and gaps. But nothing is going to be invisible when filling a knot hole.
