You may not get much of an answer Lonnie since most have not grown them all.I have grown Mt Magic and Painted Lady and would give the nod to PL between those two.

I've have grown all five over the years and by far for me Bergkonigin was the darkest pink-red.

Now, the really big question is where can we get one?

Try going to Dave's Garden, there is someone who had cuttings for trade a few years ago. They may still have it.

The only one of those mentioned that I have grown (and bloomed) was Mtn. Magic, and she does get a very nice dark pinkish/red here in our oppressive summer heat & humidity. Can't say if she's any darker than any of the others, but I wouldn't be disappointed with her.

Sadly, I lost my plant a couple years ago and I have yet been able to replace her. She's a beauty!

I hope you find your baby. I don't have that one yet or I'd send you a cutting. *Blush*
