Many years of Gardening experience, but I'm stumped, here! I carefully overwintered my outside decorations (geraniums & petunias), but my Blue Wave petunias have turned pink/purple!!!

I am CERTAIN that these are NOT offspring, but the same plants. They were Blue right up until I hung them out... Do they need something, the way hydrangeas do???

Am really puzzled. I'll have to replace them if I can't straighten them out, as the decorations for the outside of my Rabbitry are Red, White, & Blue.

Anyone got any ideas why they would do this? They are healthy, otherwise.
