Gitano X Glamor Pants, the Darker one for sure, but they are all nice.

Paul,

I agree with the others and am very smitten with the pink, too. The G.L. seedling should come and live with me. I love the form and the colors. What fun!!!

K Hurray!

I agree Paul -- that one looks like a winner, and just different enough for everyone to want one! It's fantastic!

Paul are there 2 stems in the first pink? They look a bit crowded in the picture. The one with pink standards & deep purple falls is certainly different. I think that small hybridizers are best served by 'different' looking plants.
