Abraham Lincoln rose not the right color

I bought an Abraham Lincoln rose at Lowe's earlier this week. I was hoping it would have the deep red color that it states on the tag, but my first one to open is magenta. What's up with that?

Depending on climate, soil, sun exposure, recent weather, reflected heat and light, and how long the plant has been in the ground in that spot, or whether it is in a pot or not, yes, Mr. Lincoln can be magenta.

Don't worry my supposed Mr. Lincoln bloomed white and I am pretty certain is actually JFK lol.
