Q.Is phlox paniculata Starfire red or a deep pink?

I’m looking for a deep pink phlox and Stafford looks like the plant I would like. The pictures all look deep pink but the descriptions all say cherry red and crimson?

Thanks for your answer drtreelove, and yes silly me it was a typo, I mean Starfire Phlox! I agree with you, all the photos I can search for look exactly like the colour I’m looking for, yet all the descriptions say definitely red. So I just wondered if anyone has it growing in their garden so I can get a first hand idea of the colour!

Stafford must be a typo, I don't find any variety of that name. But here are some more photos of Starfire:


You be the judge, looks like somewhere between deep pink and cherry red to me. I haven't grown it to offer first hand positive color ID.
