Positive TBGDN On Jul 16, 2006, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

Color seems to vary depending on lighting conditions like dark cloudy days, overcast skies and intense heat and sunlight. Initial blooms looked more "off-pink": Hot intense sunlight seems to affect the color, giving it the appearance of 'true' pink.
