Do you have pictures to compare it with. The color of the flower will change slightly depending upon its conditions for example what type of lighting it has or how cold or warm it is, its basic surroundings. But the flower will never be red one year and white the next year. I also fine that my memory is not what it used to be so it's best to have pictures to compare it to. It's very pretty all the same.
