Lost the tags for this these.

Both are greggii . First one is a bit more "grape" color than what it looks in the picture. ( at least on my screen)

Both beautiful flowers! I don't know, but let's ask Kermit at Flowers By The Sea, to see if he knows.

@FBTS

Would you give us your thoughts regarding these two?

It is difficult with the quality of the images that display here. We might be able to help is you email us a sharper, higher resolution image of these, along with some info about the size of the plants. It can be somewhere between difficult and impossible to do this sort of ID, as color is so dependant on growing conditions. We have an Ask Mr Sage piece about just this:

Well I'll have to see if any blooms are left after tomorrow, we are expecting freezing temps overnight and tomorrow night. The plant is evergreen, but the blooms may drop off.
I'll be able to get pics of the leaves tho.
Growing conditions, Central Florida, Pretty much Full Sun with a " little " bit of shading of the base of the plant by a wooden fence. Soil is a mix of sand/clay/loam. In the spring I dig a bit of composted chicken manure in. Other than that no fertilizer. Plants average about 2 feet tall and 18" give or take wide. Foliage is very fragrant. Blooms prolifically unless we are not getting much rain.

. Thank You!
