Oh, Todd, if you are referring to my plants, they are nowhere near blooming yet!  (Photos are from last year.)

Love that white with the pink tint!  Exquisite!

I think it is one I bought from Janis Ruksans, can't find the name.
Lori, yours had a brilliant color too!

Lori, yours will still be open before mine...mine are gradually being covered by snow as I type.  :(

The first C. solida opened today..at least the bottom-most flowers!  If only we could get a day or two of heat, I'd have loads open.

Two warm days and the solida are finally blooming properly.  Most of mine are a muddy purple but here are a few of the better ones.  The nearly red is C. solida ssp. transylvanica

I like the dark colored - what do you call that color?

Todd, nice colors!  Glad to hear that spring is finally starting in earnest for you.

I think I'd call the dark one raspberry-coloured ??

Surely you mean the nearly red, solida tranylvanica is rasberry coloured, Todd??
I think Trond was asking about the deep purple one!
So I'd call that purple or dark mauve...... it's too late (after midnight here)to get out the RHS colour charts tonight!! ;D :D

Yes, I meant the deep purple one! If you call that raspberry colored you certainly have strange raspberries! I have eaten red and yellow raspberries but not purple ones!
