Donald I don't work with AB so clearly I'm out of my element here . . . but a couple of comments. 
1) the seedling is a result of several generations, not just the parents.  Check the parent's parents, etc.
2) maiden bloom may not be true to the actual color of the seedling.  It could change next year. 
Your seedings are beautiful.  Do any rebloom?  <vbg>
If you don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
