TB: High Chaparral

I should begin by saying how much I truly like/respect/admire Schreiner's. However, has anyone else ever noticed a substantial difference in the coloring within photos of certain cultivars in their catalog versus other photos?

I ask because, after seeing all the praise "High Chaparral" received, and not being impressed by a washed out looking color in the picture, I went over to the Dave's Garden web site where there are several pics from different gardeners. Wow! What a beautiful color combination--the pink is so much richer and deeper than what I had associated with the flower. I hope someone will perhaps travel over to that site and verify which is the closest to the real thing (those of you who have grown/see this plant).

Cheesy's picture looks like the most authentic color. The others are a little rich.
