I bought this one as 'Dapper Dan' but its bloom was absolutely stunning and not quite what I expected (from photos online). It doesn't match the description either. I've messaged the seller about it, but was browsing through other plants that they have and I think this one may be 'Dinner and a Movie' or possibly another child of 'Frances Joiner'. Is anyone familiar with any of these?

I should add that the flower is also smaller, closer to the 4.5" 'Dinner and a Movie' than the 6" Dapper Dan.

Looks the same to me. It is pretty!
