'Cherry Curls'?

Anyone familiar with 'Cherry Curls'? Here's what, what was labeled as CC looks like in my garden:


and here's what they look like on davesgarden.

I can see the resemblance in form, beard, and veining, but they all seem much more purple than mine and I don't have access to the R&Is for the year it was introduced.

I would appreciate any help.

Puttytat's photos might be taken on overcast days or late in the day -- I notice color is usually like what my camera shoots when the sun in not on the iris. Expecially with purples/lavs. The red is just not picked up out of the sunlight.

Your new Canon is catching the most accurate iris colors I've yet seen along with a couple other contributors here who have Rebels (MShadow and maybe GMason).

RE: 'Cherry Curls'?

I'm used to cameras having a hard time with certain colors, but I'm also used to seeing the tones all over the place from photo to photo when a color is hard to capture.

In this instance all three photos seemed an awful lot alike and it made me question my plant.

I think it may just be right, but I'll still keep an eye on it. The red to it would explain the "cherry" part of the name.

Thank-you for the help.

RE: 'Cherry Curls'?

Your picture matches mine perfectly.

RE: 'Cherry Curls'?

Thank-you for your confirmation, Rod. I'm going to mark it as properly labeled then, because the other photos were the only reason I had to doubt mine.

RE: 'Cherry Curls'?

That is very pretty. thank you for posting it.
