      Beautiful photo. Are you sure of the ID? I thought these were supposed to have a crimson eye.

      They can be plain white or plain pink, or white or pink with the crimson center. If you search Google Images you will see quite a color variety.

      The ones on Nantucket were all pink like this.

      Yes, I see that now. There are even some dark red ones. I didn't realize this flower was so variable. Thanks.
