It's possible the variety of tree you have is a hybrid. You could have a sport branch that has a different color of flower on it.

A sport is a genetic mutation that suddenly occurs. No one is sure if this is a response to environment, cultivation, stress or simply as common as a human developing a mole. Sports result from a faulty chromosome replication. The resulting defect may occur only once or it may persist in the plant and be passed down to successive generations.
