'Sunningdale' has deep-pink flowers with redder centres held over erect leaves in a range of surface colours, with striking red reverses
'Irish Crimson' has deep-pink nodding flowers held up above neat, narrow, upstanding leaves with intense red winter colour
'Biedermeir' has robust heads of large flowers in clean pale pink with darker centres; flowers mostly in spring with sporadic flowers produced through to October. Foliage green with red tints, particularly at the margins, all year round
