Allegro Cupid Pink?

I grew the following plant from a leaf, which was labeled Allegro's Cupid Pink. The blooms don't look at all like the picture on FC2. Do you think it was mislabeled or it's just not blooming true? The color is more magenta than the red it shows in the picture.

Looks to me like you got a mislabeled plant. Did you see the plant from where the leaf came? If you know the source I would check with them. Other than that I think you have a very nice colored plant.

Allegro Cupid Pink is a semi miniature. I think you have an entirely different plant. Very pretty, though.

5 year reply is late, but I'm posting this just for those who are looking for the avariety on google and land here:
This is what it looks like. (see link)

There's some sporting going on. Cupid pink is usually more pink than white.
