If you had shown the pictures without titles I would have picked the one on the left, it certainly reminds me of the Misty Twilight I knew.   What's interesting, is that none of the photos look quite alike.  The amount of light appears to contribute to the difference too.
I made a mad dash to the garden to see if it were possible that Misty Twilight was not that, and if it were possibly Sea World, planted several feet away.  The supplier has made one mistake on labelling. I found, after ripping a few flowers apart, that the two are nearly identical except for a little more frill on the style arms of Sea World. But, then again, the breeding of the two are nearly identical.  On younger blossoms, Misty Twilight shows, hmmm, lilac and that more clearly on the standards, as does Sea World. Both fade pretty fast as the blossom ages. Attached is a photo of the two side by side. Unfortunately, the clouds thinned when I took the photo of Sea World.
