Bougainvillea cutting has a different color flower from parent
Parent plant had orange flowers (bracts) and rooted cutting has lavender. How could this happen? I am sure I didn't get the cutting mixed up since I don't have a lavender to take cuttings from.
All I can think of is that it is growing conditions. The parent was in sandy soil, neglected and not fertilized. I put the cutting in potting mix and fertilized it with bougainvillea fertilizer. Could the soil/fertilizer have affected the flower (bract) color?
