Very interesting and thank for sharing, color is not something stable, it can be influenced by several factors temperature is important, humidity, light, etc, can also affect it…

With my experience with pale species, from a single cross some clones opened with colored flowers and got paler as they age, others do the opposite...

It's Sedenii Candidulum, because of the light color.
Here's my regular one from Ecuagenera. Phrag. schlimii Wilcox is supposed to be Sedenii but, I think the rounder shape and better substance and color show something extra in the parentage. 20220406_084448_resized.jpg

The colors are very temperature sensitive. Flowers that develop in cool to cold conditions have much more intense color than those that develop in warm conditions. You'd think they were different flowers.
