apricot foxglove

I planted an apricot foxglove last year and it bloomed beautifully. It had lots of seedlings sprout, as well as the original plant coming back this year. But, it seems like it's a different color--more lavender pink than the pinkish apricot it's supposed to be. My question is, do apricot foxglove come back with true color in their seedlings or even the original plant? thank you.

The original plant should stay the same colour. The seedlings may well revert to the species colour.

RE: apricot foxglove

it is down to an industrious bee, cross-pollinating. my foxgloves invariably revert after a few seasons.
