Weird Colors

In the last couple days, I've had two blooms that are missing a lot of their red pigment. I haven't put chemicals or given these any special treatment, so I don't know what is going on. Other blooms on the same plants are normal. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

Some of my daylilies have looked paler this year than normal, but wow, not that much. They look like completely different daylilies. I have been blaming it on the odd weather & extra hot here this year. You haven't accidentally hit them with some chemicals, have you?

No chemicals since May. It seems to be just a freak aberration.

Nate, I've had a couple that were pretty far off. I end to blame garden gnomes. Why not, I have no other explanTION.

I think its the weather, some of mine faded to white, no color at all. Some dahlias doing the same thing.

That is exactly what mine are doing!

Must be the climate! A few of mine are terribly faded: Bridey Greeson and Lavender Shimmer - they aren't even recognizable. Invitation to Immortality puts out one beautiful bloom and one pathetic one right next to it. And I have an Extra Early blooming for the first time this year!

Yeah, I'm thinking the weather. More reds are blooming pale, although not quite as pale as the two I posted. SERGEANT MAJOR was somewhat pale today, in addition to more FIRE AGATE blooms.
