Can someone tell me which of these has the more blue eye, and which is more of a cream (off-white) color ? The written description of both say "cream", but many of the pictures I've seen--esp. of Oceans Eleven-- sure look like light yellow to me! Thanks so much for your input!!

Here are pictures of Oceans Eleven taken on different days. In my garden it is real cream, not an off white. The eye is quite blue with a red pencil line. I don't have Huckleberry Candy, but did order it this year. These pictures were taken with my Canon DSLR camera and the colours are pretty accurate.

I have HC and I would describe it as light pink/lavender, but not cream. It is not cream or yellow.

This was the first year on my Oceans Eleven so not sure how it will bloom in the future for color.

I have Huckleberry Candy---and it has bloomed with some yellow in it---that makes it look cream. More often it is a pale pinkish/blue-white with a blue eye. The blue in the eye becomes a bit more intense and reddish/purple as the weather warms. Warmth also changes the background color to cream. I like it either way. It makes a big clump--Fast, and puts on a great show.
