    Do ping flowers change colour as they get older? ie. do they go from white to pink or white to purple?

    I have only dealt with Mexi-Pings so other may be different but I tend to find that the flowers become more pale with age. My potosiensis is flowering like mad, the oldest bloom is significantly lighter then the most recent.

    Is your question regarding a particular Ping?
    My P. primuliflora begins white and after several days takes on its colorful yellow and lavender tones.

    I'm sorry I didn't phrase that right, what itshould have said was:"Do pings other than primuliflora change colour as they get older?"

    I have a mystery ping that I am trying to identify and it seems to be going an orangish pink. I was planning to post pics today however apparantly the camera was left on and now I need to recharge the battery.

    On the topic of primuliflora though, 5 days after opening it's still white... any thoughts?
