Can you ID any of these Hibs?

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

I have 3 hibs with no name. Two are Southern Belle Dinnerplates, but if they have a cultivar name, I'd like to know it. They're both beautiful. A third is just strange (will go into more detail below.)

This is one of the Southern Belles--the Light Pink one, I call it. It's really what got me hooked on hibs and now I have about 15 or so hardy cultivars (and looking for more). It only gets about 5 ft tall and the blooms are huge. They close up about noon each day. And it produces tons of seeds. It has the usual heart-shaped leaves.

This is the darker pink Southern Belle with huge blooms, heart shaped leaves, and produces lots of seeds. The bloom has a red eye. It gets about 5 ft tall with huge blooms.

This last one gets very tall, at least 6 or 7 ft tall. The foliage is maple-like, very similar to that of TX star. The bubble-gum pink blooms are small and don't seem to open fully ever. Every bloom stays furled. It's been in full sun but still the blooms are shy. They're small blooms, probably 4-5 inches. The seed pods are abundant and small with velvety seeds like those of Lord and Lady Baltimore.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'd love to know what to call these three ladies.

Ooops, forgot the picture!
