Shirley tulip changing colour

freki(5a)May 11, 2013

when I put it in it flowered mostly mauve splatter. This year it's in more sun & is cream with a fine edging of mauve. Anyone else have this happen, tulips changing their flower on you?

I guess it's been a couple days with no other responses.... Has your tulip changed further? Shirley seems to start out light cream with a fine edge but then goes to all mauve splatter as the blooms age. Is this maybe what happened?
