No, you're not doing anything wrong.
Roses that are a "blend" of colors like this can vary on the same plant. Temperatures can alter the coloration of certain roses considerably. Look it up in the rose database here on ATP and you'll see pictures of it.

That happens to me a LOT. Roses will look completely different on the same bush because of the temperatures. Your rose looks perfectly normal, if very pretty!!

If you really wanna see a chameleon rose, get a Koko loco. That rose starts out a pinkish apricot salmony color, then goes to a chocolate milk color before finally fading to a true lavender!
