I was hoping this one would hold color for more then a week. An orange should do better then that.. I noticed at work that the lighter colored orange Cheyenne Spirits go purple fairly quickly. On some of them the first few flowers opened a light orange and they were followed with ones that opened purple. I have only seen a color change of blooms like that on one other plant A Hot Coral I had , the first 2 flowers were pink and after that they started to open orange.
