Colored Arum Lily

Zone PORT ELIZABETH, SOUTH AFRICA | gouldian added on November 21, 2016 | Answered

Why is it that the flowers change color? I have a number of colors and I have noticed a nice yellow changes into pink, and sometimes orange. Also, the Picaso color changes from the two-tone to cream or light purple and sometimes almost green. A chocolate color has changed to red. Has anybody else experienced the same or have an explanation for what is happening? Regards, DEON ERASMUS PORT ELIZABETH.

Here is an explanation for why the colored flowers change to green or a streaked green color. Calla lilies are a type of arum lily.
