Summer Aster - Blooms in purple or violet?

Now we have the lovely summer aster in violet or hot pink or even purple? Sooo difficult to define the colours - even for me as a painter - and additionally all images look different depending on the monitor you have got. What a dilemma!! :)

These are the ones I'm putting in our garden :-) They look pinky-purple to me :-)

It is sometimes really difficult to say which colour it is depending on the monitor. Dell f.e. has really strange colours on their monitors - you never know how it looks like. this is sometimes really irritating.
Have a lovely sunday, Kelly!
