Q.Clematis Flower Paler Than Usual

The colour of my Lilac clematis seems a lot paler than usual and I was wondering why. Only one flower has opened so far the the others might not be as pale.

Do you fertilize your clematis? If not, it may be due some. Fertilize in April, June and August with a balanced fertilizer. Another cause might be if there is more sun than usual. Too much sun on some red, purple, and bicolored hybrids can cause them to fade.
