Wister describes this flower as having white pistils (carpels) with pale pink stigmas; additionally, the 1943 Saunders’ catalog supplement describes white flares on the outside.  Obviously, my photographs show slightly different features so maybe I have the wrong plant. However, I recently observed ‘Bravura’ in a friend’s garden (top photo) and it appears to be identical to my own plant (second photo).

Any comments on this plant?
