I am a total garden novice, it's plant it and see what happens! So far I've been lucky everything seems fine and with the help of fellow gardeners on

Don't know why this happens but if it's a hybrid variety it sometimes will revert back the original plant. I've had this happen with delphiniums.

@gjones it must be something in the soil as my last lupin blooms also changed colour I'm loving the colour changes nice little surprises

Could be soil-- it does with hydrangeas

Did a little research: one site said colder temperatures will change plant colours, another site said that many flowers will change colour after pollination. Don't know if this helps but I thought I'd share it.

Thanks @gjones you could be right's its a mystery as it looks like the lavander lady variety of which I've just planted a seedling alongside maybe that's effecting it not complaining though the flower is stunning ☺

@ladylucy thank you I would love a different type of passion flower to mingle in with my existing one but none of the gardens centres I've visited have any passion flowers. I bought this one last year from the pound shop and what an amazing growth in a year 🌞👍

@ladylucy sounds fab I think I will have to try a bigger garden centre or online I did see seeds on ebay but the last seeds I got on ebay were duds no growth and they were only delphiniums so wary of eBay for that reason 👍☺
