I've forgotten the id of this white /pink large cup. The cup has a distinctive scalloped edge that I thought may be a good indicator. Any ideas? Maybe @jmorth will have a suggestion?

Ah, thanks for the attempt Thank You! , but I can rule all of those out because those all grow here and still have their labels. The bloom is about the size of Chromacolor and the cup is similar, but just a bit shorter and more pronounced scalloped edges, and not as intensely colored as Chromacolor.

I believe I got them from one of the Touch of Nature co ops 8 or more years ago.

Over the years I've seen so many varieties that were commonly offered by vendors that are now absent from the market. It's made me sure to go ahead and get novelty varieties I'm interested in rather than wait. One I waited too long to order was Pink Silk. Right at the end I did end up ordering a few from somewhere, but they were mislabeled and after that I haven't seen them offered. Missing out on that one really bums me out! There are also a few that are dwindling in the garden but they're not replaceable. Silent Valley and Billy Graham specifically- going to try digging them and perhaps move them to a nursery bed with specialized care.

I've got Bell Song, and I don't think the cup is long enough for Salome. Also the cup opens pink, and Salome tends to open yellow and age to pinkish. I had thought for some time that it was Easter Bonnet, but it doesn't look right. Could be that's what I purchased and it was mislabeled.

Sagitta is beautiful, another I wish I'd acquired when it was commonly available.

Romance is the closest I've seen! Thanks so much! I'll look into that one more closely, and if I find a vendor offering it, I'll get a few bulbs to compare.
