Not entirely true - weather can have a dramatic effect on pigment
intensity.  I didn't know that LACED COTTON, a white flower, was
actually a pale plicata, until the year the weather was just right.  And
the plicata markings on ENGLISH COTTAGE have always faded to white
almost immediately after the bloom opens here.  Cool wet weather seems
to bring out the markings more than hot dry weather.
