 Prunus persica 'Versicolor'
In the nursery industry it is often difficult to describe, in layman's terms, the exact colour of a flower, but it is even more difficult when a shrub has flowers which undergo a colour change from bud to bloom or present different coloured flowers on the same branch as is the case with the Prunus pictured above. I come unstuck when labeling the Brugmansia below as pink when actually the blooms start out as acid yellow. The customer naturally feels duped at the appearance of these yellow flowers but only has to wait a couple of days before the colour changes to dark pink. It's versatile versicolor........
