Both are V. bracteata, the green/yellow favor is the variety ' Lemon Flame. Lemon Flame is nearly one and a half times as large as the plain pink variety, however, the pink one has two flower scapes.
These are grown in a cool basement under fluorescent lights (temp avg. ~ 60°).

Lemon Flame
Thumb of 2014-03-06/jmorth/6bf4ba < 3-2Thumb of 2014-03-06/jmorth/8d2c2d < 3-4 starting to lose it's symmetry (symmetry wasn't helped when flower head ws knocked about when plant moved upstairs for our visual pleasure).
The pink one is just now beginning actual bloom, If I can get some good pics they'll be posted soon. They'd be better in basement but its been so cold (making for a quite cool basement) that to view them there you need to dress for the occasion with extra warm apparel. When they've finished their bloom appeal up here, they'll be re-stationed in the basement under fluorescents.

Different latitudes, different attitudes
