Z. a. 'Pink Mist' (also packaged as 'Marshmallow from what I know) has been
here for a few years.  Is in flower in a pot on my back verandah (well the
flower is just dying off) and certainly looks like an Z. aethopica by
leaves and flowers.  No sign of the elongated leaves of Z. rehmanii

It is really creamy white with a pale pink throat.  They were so damn
expensive here that I haven't been game to put some out in the open garden
yet to see if the colour intensifies with better watering and a good
rootrun.  I "think" I was told that the colour is stronger at the height of
summer than it is the rest of the year.
