Color changing flower

This flower was brought to office by Arshiya, a colleague. It is called Hibiscus Mutabilis, also known as Confederate Rose or Cotton Rosemallow. The flower was white in the morning, turned pink during noon and red in the evening.

Wonderful, we have flowers(Hydrangea) they change colors based on PH value of the soil, either pink or blue. If soil changes properties due to foliage in the fall next year color will be different.
