poly and pink

this started blooming today.  it has pink sepals.   and the petals are what is called polychrome a blending of pink and yellow.  throw in a few toothy edges.  the cross is Ruffled Strawberry Parfait x Sky Captain.  now will it grow tall like Sky Captain ?  i won’t even try to guess until it comes out of the seedling bed.  so many things are at half height from this year of sparse rain.  three images…

    Dan, I like the look. I am waiting for the next bloom to look and compare more closely to the pictures. Most cameras are tuned to facial skin tones. I want to see if it is exaggerating the pink, particularly on the sepals – the back set of petals. Either way it is still pretty and like you say soft. Thanks !
