Nice ones Susan, Love that Decadance, and I'm not going to see mine this year, almost killed it. It's coming back, and I have another one ordered to speed things up. I have two new ones open today, it's really windy today, so pics are hard to get.

Mariposa Skies is a re-bloomer, but not in my zone. Regal Nave I had imported from Australia as a new release.

stilldew,
I have silverado and it is MUCH lighter than that, almost a light gray. One of us, has a noid it looks like.
I have had mine for 4 years now. Here is a link to it on DG. Mine looks like this, maybe even lighter, it has more color when it first opens and the second day is even lighter.

The photo of Silverado which looks almost white is the correct one.

Regal Nave is very nice!

I changed the Silverado to NOID. I do have Silverado, but I think that one is Lavender Park after looking at some old photos. The cat is called Fat Sophie. I have had her on a diet for a year and she has only lost 4 oz. I think she is a good hunter. We had a very heavy rain during the night, so am not expecting to get many good photos this morning.

Victoria Falls is a very pretty color, but needs to be staked or it falls over. I grow it in the neighbor's garden and often cut the stalks to take to work.
