Hibiscus flowers changing colour?

Sharon1130October 7, 2012

I have had this yellow hibiscus now for 4 years, and the flowers have always been yellow with a red throat. But towards the end of the summer all the flowers turned a creamsicle (orange) colour. I have not changed my routine at all so I don't understand why they would change colour at this point.

May have something to do with carotenoids and the weather.
