The porch tonight and Opal Star vs Cherry Crush

Here's the porch tonight. iPhone photo is sort of fuzzy...sorry!

In the far back left is my Opal Star from Walmart and just to the right is my Cherry Crush from ETGB. I had been told that they are the same, but clearly they aren't. The Opal Star has much veining on 5/6 of the tepals. I think they must be related as the general form is the same, but Cherry Crush is more red and white and Opal Star is more red and yellow-cream.

Thoughts?

It looks like the Opal Star is the same as mine, and the CC looks different..Is there less green in the flower?...Could you climb up in there and take a closer pic......LOL...just kidding- no dont do that.
My CC is still in the cool basement waiting its turn to bloom.

Here's a closer photo of my Opal Star taken with zoom. "Good" photos to be taken tonight in kitchen.

Here's a photo with a "real" camera vs iPhone. Opal Star on left, Cherry Crush on right. The center of Cherry Crush really is dark!

That is the shape of Knight Star Lily Flowers that I like.
And, with white midribs - and if they had frilly edges then I would die (wait, then I cannot enjoy them, so I slighly correct to "I would kill") for these! LOL!
Thank you for showing them. I would crosspollinate them although I think that these are not as likely "taking".

Alfresco is a generous and fertile mate. While I might get some doubles and some scent, it might also introduce some frills. I love envisioning the possiblities.
