Color Change on Dynamite Crape Myrtle

totallyconfusedJuly 12, 2010

Recently I've noticed some pink blosoms interspersed among the red ones on my Dynamite crape myrtle. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Is it a normal variation for this particular type of crape?

Either it is sporting pink branches or it is grafted onto a pink one, although I am not aware of this practice being undertaken with crape myrtles.
