    Just a clarification on the color….G. endressi 'Wargrave Pink' has petals of a light salmon pink RHSCC Red Group 55B, though a little bluer at the extreme edge in young flowers; towards the tips a slightly darker network of veins is visible. The petals change color with age only slightly…. Because of its colour it is best planted away from more pinkish geraniums." Peter F. Yeo, Hardy Geraniums, 2nd. Ed., p. 62.

    One can actually do an Internet search of RHSCC 55B and see examples of some flowers with that beautiful light salmon pink color.

    So…my plant is not light salmon pink despite being marketed as G. endressi 'Wargrave Pink'. It is a heavily veined and very pretty light pink. I would still appreciate finding the original light salmon pink.

    Update: I think the photos posted by kniphofia best match the light salmon pink color desbribed by Dr. Yeo. :)
