More on IDhwlp Calif. Sunset?

OK folks, these are more recent pictures of what was supposed to be royal Hawaiian, but isn't I realized the earliest pix don't show size, which may help identifying it. It is a long lasting flower, at least 4 days in this heat, it never opened up totally, as you can see from the pix. It is small, 2-2 1/2" at most, if it opened up like Bill's Psycho White, it would be the same size, but it doesn't so diameter wise, it is smaller. Thick petal, wonderful very stong floral fragrance. Also, it did not fade much at all compared to the first photo, unlike the one in the picture that I compared it to, which fades quickly.
Does this help? I got it from the spring garden show, check was to Mona Lisa Palmer. If anyone has her email, I will email her to see which she thinks it may be.

Thanks! I have been so excited to have varieties that I KNOW vs no id! I love the color of this one, and it just so happens that Bill gave me a cutting of Royal Hawaiian after the show, so that way I don't have duplicates! I don't have room for duplicates!

Thank you for the phone number PlumieGirl!

Yes, we we were all lined up, with piles of cuttings in our arms (especially Laura!!!)

In the meantime, any suggestions on what this is, Bill, James? Anybody?
