Lyshack said:Are you sure that's the same plant? The first one doesn't look like a double and is significantly shorter. The second one is a double and matches the description of Land of Cotton.
I guess it's possible the first year maybe it wasn't mature enough to bloom double and to its normal color??? Maybe?

alilyfan said:Or do you mean later scapes are cream and double?
alilyfan said:My Land of Cotton does not change colors, not sure I have ever seen it bloom in a single form, and scapes are taller than your 1st photo.
bxncbx said:It happens to me with my near whites depending on temperature (and maybe other stuff). Most of my near whites look white to me but if it is cool the first flowers can be more peach or yellow or pink depending on the underlying color. When it gets warmer they go back to normal.
It was really obvious last year when we had lots of rainy/cloudy days at the start of the season. If I hadn't had some for years I would have sworn they were different plants!
sooby said:The two flowers of 'Land of Cotton' are so different I wonder if there is a fan of something else mixed in that is an earlier bloomer. Do all three plants do this?
