An interesting goal.

The first  photo is an attempt through balancing of hues, as  per pre lycopene pinks. And pnks as seen in "pink" siberian  iris

The last is  one where you seem to have captured lycopene genes, but as you say, only 1/4 aril.

For modern pinks in TB  everyone is using lycopene genes which  seem to be absent from Arils. Thus the problem.

Good luck.
