A very unusual border auricula

Seedling No.55 19th May

I've been experimenting with some border auricula crosses; seedling No.55 is very unusual as it changes colour from a mustard brown colour to a bright lilac as the pips mature (blooms). I’ve some auriculas where the pip becomes a different tone of the same colour as they mature, but never such a large colour change. I do not know if this is a one off event for its first blooming or if it will continue to perform the same every year, so I will test for a couple of years  to see how it performs long-term. If anyone else had had this phenomenon please do let me know./Ray
