I didn't mean to hijack the velvety-fushia ID. I don't dare take a guess, but I will say that I recall Etoile Violette being very present all over the place back in the day. I saw it as kind of a fushia-purple??
Regarding my pink striped one,
Here are a couple pics taken when I got home tonight. The first baked in the sun all day. The second had more shade hiding on the ground.
What do you all think? Can I call her Nelly Moser?
Regarding "the purple one",
very interesting...maybe there are different versions of Durandii. It would seem that some have a more gappy appearance, with narrower tepals, and some are not so gappy looking, with wider tepals and more tepals. I read that they can have five or six. My possible Durandii that is blooming now has flowers with four, five, and six tepals without the gappy appearance, more like this picture
Here are a couple pics from tonight, pardon the background
Whereas the ones that I purchased as Durandii, were certainly resembling the gappy type last year. So far this season, they aren't even close to blooming. Could be their immaturity and location, or perhaps they are a later blooming gappy type?
Anyway, I think the key to the ID on this one is the fact that it doesn't climb. I'll probably still call it the purple one...
