Mystery - Rilona, Angelique or ???

This was the bloom in 2008 (didn't bloom last year).

This year's bloom is just opening. VERY big, and bold colors. Any ideas?? Someone had suggested Candy Floss...put your guessing caps on. Will post current photo tomorrow.

OK...here's the bloom this year/tonight! WHO AM I!?!?!

Have had to put a shade/tarp over the greenhouse to block the direct hot afternoon sun that blasts into the greehouse. Even with vents/screens open, it was 110 this afternoon. However, with my new "lemonade" attitude...all the fungus gnats and no-see-ums were killed! Nothing seems to be suffering, just can't believe how warm it gets! This sun block should keep things more reasonable, screens still open!

Mariava...it's so DARK!! I think it's beautiful, but was thrown off by the vibrant colors of the petals. The first year (not the first photo) it was just kinda pinkish...this year, with the cold winter....BOOM!!! So, remember that email about AB being a "Horse"....well, right now she's the prettiest pony in my stable, at least of the blooms at their peak! THANKS...I'll lable her correctly. Was really just thrown off by the colors.

SO...any thoughts on the first one??
;-)
Kristi

PS...AB was sold as Exotica!

Kristi...I have one of this and have given up finding it's true ID. What I came up before was this. If your is pink...Summertime. If it is pink with slight peach...Trendsetter.

Thanks Maria. I got home...ran to the greenhouse and stuck my nose into the bloom.....AHHHHHH....sweet. It's our friend Apple Bloosom. I'm jus struck by the color. AMAZING.

Now that I think about the top photo...it has to be Summertime. I had never heard of it prior to the trip to Keukenhof, and it's on my "must have list"...and I might just have her already. It looks just like it...from 2008???

Thanks again!
