Changeable and Versicolor

Changeable lotus flowers change colors as they age. They usually open as a red or pink lotus and change to a lighter color. An excellent example of this is 'Mrs. Perry D. Slocum' which has a first day flower that is a beautiful luminous pink. The second day flower has begun to turn a warm creamy yellow in the center. The flower continues to get lighter with age, turning creamy white with a pink blush on the edges of the petal.

 

Versicolor lotus have more than one color on the same flower. 'Decorated Lantern' and 'Sing, Birdie, Sing' are good examples of versicolor flowers. The flowers are white with dark red at the tips of the petals.
