    Both are hybrids, and there are so many similar ones out there, plus variability within a single hybrid, that you're never going to know for sure. If someone claims they can ID it from the flower, they're kidding themselves and trying to kid you.

    Sorry.

    The first one is very attractive! I don't recognize either.
