The Original "Candy Pink" has flowers that are a very definite Pink,and are not wine colored or red...the throats should be a solid pink,with no white showing.
The seeds of "Candy Pink" are a beige color and definitely not brown or black.
The plant very much resembles the True Old type Scarlett O'Hara ,but is a rich pink,instead of Red.
