Strange..

I bought a plant with light pink flowers earlier this year. When it wasn't flowering anymore I cut all the green parts off, and it started growing and flowering again. But the flowers were a very different color than they were before ! Now they are sort of dark pink with a yellow heart... See pictures. Can you call this a mutation or what caused this?

    Growers can treat plants with chemicals to make them look unusual. Once the plants regrow without any influence from chemicals they revert to their natural state.

    I bought some miniature roses which have done exactly the same thing.

    It’s quite common.

    Thanks for your reply Pansyface. 

    I like the new color even more, because it's darker and more vibrant...
