Versicolor you reckon, Chrissy?

E.g. pink seems to be recessive in some species and dominant or co-dominant in others.

There seem to be very few Brugmansia hybrids which express both pink and yellow simultaneously.

Orange is achieved in two ways: one is very strong apricot (these open cream first and abruptly go orange overnight). This is always derived from B. versicolor. The other is by yellow or orange carotene pigments (from B. aurea and possibly B. suaveolens). These open yellow and darken more gradually.

Interesting ...

The white blooms have turned pink overnight.
