    Darren, welcome.

    With about a thousand species, tens of thousands of named hybrids and an untold number of unregistered hybrids, the chance of getting a positive ID are slim. I do not wish to discourage you, by all means, post the pictures. A close-up of a single flower, an image of the entire plant or a section thereof, noting the presence or absence of indumentum or tomentum and whether the plant is a lepidote or elepidote would be of great help in making a positive ID. Also, the approximate age of a plant, if it could be provided, would allow for the elimination of some of the more recent hybrids.
    Like Eric, I'm looking forward to seeing some of the images!
