There are pink flowering specimens in N. America, though they're
less common than the usual white ones. I've seen my own normally
white-flowering (Welsh,) plants come pink this year under strong
artificial light, and Fernando reports the same phenomenon in
D. communis (I think it was communis?)
i think someone mentioned aliciae (or was it adelae?) pulling a
similar stunt a few months ago.

Happy growing,
