Wiki article on H. mutabilis, confederate rose
The Wiki article for H. mutabilis contains the following sentence: "Flowers are white in the morning, turning pink during noon and red in the evening of the same day."
The sentence is quoted from a scholarly article about the antioxidant properties of H. mutabilis at various altitudes in Malaysia. Trying to read this article to understand if these are the same H. mutabilis that are ubiquitous in the southern US is more boring than I can take.
So hopefully this is a good place to ask. Are they considering "red" to be the color of the shriveled old blooms? I wouldn't call them flowers red at all until they do that, then "red" would be a stretch to describe the pink-turning-brown color. Are the the southern US H. mutabilis simply different plants, or am I just picking gnat poop out of pepper by questioning the word red? If they are different, how would one refer to them to make that distinction? Are the ones all over the southern US some long-ago created cultivar?
And I've seen plenty of white flowers late in the evening...
Bottom line, should this Wiki article be edited? If so, how does one go about that without a source to cite? I doubt just saying "they don't do that here" will suffice on there.
