I love these yummy color combinations!

FLORENTINE SILK - My favorite!

DANDY CANDY - This one is fascinating -- For me it starts out as a lavender/pink combo, and then by the second day the pink seems to fade a bit and an orange tone seem more prominent. But sometimes, if the weather is cool enough, it stays lavender/pink the entire time -- and conversely, if it's really warm I get the more lavender/orange tones for the entire time. What a fun plant!

Here is the more lavender/pink combo:

And here is the combo with more orange showing:

PHOTOGENIC - Absolutely beautiful, both in sunshine and in the shade!

I know that some of you have already shared your bicolors in the Pinks thread, but I'd love to see any here that people would like to share.

You are missing the irises, aren't you. Don't worry time for them will come.They are all quite nice.
I have a funny BB seedling with a violet wash. There was a bee pod where 8 seeds germinated & they were all pink. I might have shown the seedling in other places.

Wow, Betty we have similar tastes in this color class. I totally love Florantine Silk, and Dandy Candy, And New Face, And Oxford Countess, I have them too, I also planted Photogenic and Role Reversal last year, so I haven't seen them bloom yet. Also planted Splurge last year, that is a pink and purple version of Expose. Can't wait to see them bloom.Here's a few others I have.

seedling not an introduction at this time. Mainly a use in hybridizing. I could not have planned the color.

You'll love them Aruba, Gitano is a bit more pink in real life then my picture shows it. Some times the camera just can't do justice to the real thing.

Thanks everyone for the beautiful pictures.

I lost my Gitano and am replacing it this year. I didn't get to see it bloom. But after the brutal summer we had last year, it is no surprise to see some losses. But that was the only one I noticed.
