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.
