I would guess that Mary Sue's photo in Harry Hay's garden is of Nomocharis 
aperta, a light pink flower which has entire tepal margins and not much 
spotting. However, this genus is prone to hybridization, particularly in 
Britain, where it has been grown and both deliberately and "bee" hybridized 
for many years.

Nomocharis is difficult for me since it requires a dryish winter and moist 
summer, but I've grown N. aperta well in the past -- until the rabbits ate it.
