 The colour difference  is probably a temperature affect. My Aura Light is more like Bills. I suspect a light tint of anthocyanin which is more pronounced in colder areas especially where spring weather is colder. also cloud cover/sunlight ratios during week before bud opens also has the result of more anthocyanin and hence darker falls in this case. The light anthocyanin tints are very temperature/sunlight sensitive. A case in point is Thornbird. Much colour variation in different climates. Thornbird has a light violet overlay (anthocyanin).
