 I would guess that you have a stand out clone of Habranthus robustus or at
least is possible to have Habranthus robustus that color.  I have a strain
that produces white to near white flowers like that with the pink darker
and more concentrated at the tepal tips. Yours appears exceptionally dark
and probably darker than most of mine but the seedlings mine produces vary
a bit so perhaps you have an exceptional combo there. I have several
LaBufaRosa clones that that have a very similar pigment pattern but of
course that is a distinctly different flower configuration and of course I
can't see anything from your photo that would necessarily rule out a
hybrid. What are the leaves like?
