Mine have a colour range similar to what you describe, have just finished flowering for me here (M. depressa has just opened, to give you a second reference point), but I think mine had a bit smaller flowers than those, at least in comparison to the leaves. A very cute smaller species, and one I would not like to be without. Cheers. Paul T.
